I have fixed the example.

Basically we should say somewhere that XHTML notation is the same as HTML5 (for local attributes, embedded rules, standoff markup, etc.) and in top of that embedded rules are frown upon.

I'm not sure if correctly understand to meaning of "frown" here, but we
are discourage embeded rules in both XHTML and HTML:

Section 6.2: "...Note: It is preferred to use external global rules
linked using link element."

Section 7: "... and SHOULD NOT use inline global rules ..."

Personally I think that both embeded (inline) rules and standoff markup
should be removed from HTML, but I'm probably alone :-(
