Subject: Re: [dita] Stage one proposal: Allow <example> in same locations as <div>

For many of my clients finding themselves in the position of scott, weâve actually used <note type=âotherâ othertype=âexampleâ> to include a somewhat more semantic, albeit not perfect, example as a peer of most body elements.


But the very fact I can say this is what we do gives credence to Scottâs position that itâs not an isolated case.

Subject: [dita] Stage one proposal: Allow <example> in same locations as <div>


The content model for example is much too restrictive, limiting how and where content can be semantically marked as exemplary content. As a result, writers often hardcode paragraphs with "For example:â" or other non-semantic constructions.


By allowing <example> in more places, content can be properly tagged with the <example> semantic.


If there are too many models to change, we could also allow <example> within <div>.


Thanks and best regards,
