Remove redundant category "If the itemprop attribute is present: flow
content.", as this is already covered by phrasing content.  This applies to
both the link and meta elements

Also note that the equivalent section in the HTML5 Microdata delta spec only states that these elements are phrasing content.  So removing the flow content category will resolve this discrepancy too.
Comment 2 Lachlan Hunt 2010-01-15 12:05:40 UTC
Changing this bug to be about correcting the discrepancy in the Microdata spec.  It seems that all phrasing content elements are explicitly listed as being in Flow Content, so this isn't really a bug in the complete spec as I thought.

This statement from the Micordata delta spec should be updated to mention Flow Content too.

"If the itemprop attribute is present on link or meta, they are phrasing content. The link and meta elements may be used where phrasing content is expected if the itemprop attribute is present."
