Will these digital publishing roles be available for use in regular web
pages? There is a need for things like footnotes, for example, in regular
web pages, even if they're not in digital publications. I'm thinking of
footnotes with legal disclaimers, the small print about special offers,
etc. Will it be frowned-upon to use these new roles in those situations?
