Description Oli Studholme 2009-09-28 07:31:22 UTC
I’d like to link to #the-section-element note (“The section element is not a generic container element.”…) and probably some of the other ‘author warning’ notes directly, eg for Twitter feedback.
Comment 1 Ian 'Hixie' Hickson 2009-09-29 11:01:59 UTC
There's 453 <p class="note">s in the spec, I'm not individually marking each of them with an ID. However, please feel free to file bugs for those for which you need IDs.

I've added one for "not a generic container element". Let me know which others you want.
