But that's not always the right thing either: <p>This is mixed<footnote>See page 72</footnote> content.</p> <<<<<<<<<<< This definately falls under the category of "let the implementer beware". We should just do minimal stuff with this. An XPath query could extract the whole <p> piece - and then locally allow manipulating of it. Tons of other things are like this : well-drilling raw numbers comes to mind: <result time="24:34:45:102" drilldepth="300" rotation="97:34">234, 456, 366, 433, 868, 557, 678, 234, 124, 565</result> and similar stuff. We just do structure - if people want to do wacky sneaky things - that's their problem to ensure consistent post-processing. DW.
