Comment 1 Peter Winnberg 2010-12-07 05:38:47 UTC
I disagree. The contents of the nav element on is a *list* of links so it should be using an appropriate element for representing lists.

In fact, why is inline content even allowed in the nav element?
Comment 2 Anne 2010-12-07 09:50:24 UTC
Everything is a list if you think too long about it. Paragraph-level navigation is perfectly acceptable. Especially inside a <nav> element as the only thing that matters inside <nav> are <a>s.
Comment 3 Ian 'Hixie' Hickson 2011-01-11 01:03:29 UTC
I'm not sure the inline links on your blog make that much sense (consider how it would read if the style sheet were disabled), but I agree that I should add an example of non-list content in <nav>.
Comment 4 Anne 2011-01-11 09:33:00 UTC
Even with style sheets disabled should the <nav> element not be enough of an indication what to expect from the contents? (Visually you would get three links after each other, not really problematic.)
