[oops] Eliminating Authoring Distinctions between Block and Non-block Semantics

State:
CLOSED
Product:
Raised by:
Dan Connolly
Opened on:
2008-05-28
Description:
Support for eliminating authoring distinctions between block and non-block semantics (particularly within the HTML5 DOM and XML serialization, but perhaps also in text/html serialization). Proposal would allow authors to use only Q element and not need to worry about Q and BLOCKQUOTE distinctions (also could apply to CODE and BLOCKCODE if HTML5 adopted these semantics).

Noting for the record that I've reviewed this issue to see if/how it relates to accessibility concerns and found that it has nothing at all to do with accessibility.
