In your latest email on the @about="" issue (ISSUE-92) [1], you said:

> Thanks, Mark, for the explanation. So the purpose of about="" is, like

I think you're asking about what happens to @about="" if there's a base 
element that points to a different URL than the current base.

The answer is that the XHTML base element will override the current 
base, as described in Section 5.2:

The [base]. This will usually be the URL of the document being 
processed, but it could be some other URL, set by some other mechanism, 
such as the XHTML base element. The important thing is that it 
establishes a URL against which relative paths can be resolved.

Is this clear enough, and do you consider this issue resolved?
