Re: 4.1.1 Parsing > nested elements

Going off topic a bit, for an html reference, I prefer the other w3c
document that has Steve's name on it:


because it's easy to search the left navigation panel. Whatever html
element I'm looking for, I can type the element tag name (without the
brackets), followed by the letter "e" for "elements". So for the <ul>
element, I'd search the page for "ul e". For the <main> element, I'd
search for "main e". (Or you can actually type "element" instead of "e"
but I'm a lazy typer.) This works great when the element name is a common
word, like "table" or "main" or "form", or if the element name is a single
letter or common letter combination found it lots of other words, such as
<a> or <p> or <q> (search for "a e" or "p e" or "q e").

So for the <ul> element, it found the page,
https://www.w3.org/TR/html53/grouping-content.html#the-li-element, which
shows the allowed roles for the <ul> element. Steve had referenced
https://www.w3.org/TR/html-aria/#ul. I just wanted to give another option.
