summary naming

Issue recorded on the WHATWG wiki: http://wiki.whatwg.org/wiki/Summary

  • <summary> (inside <details>)
    • need a more specific name. summary is too generic sounding of an element name for this special usage. Similar to the problem with <address> (special use - for contact information for the document, but used as a generic "address" for street addresses).
    • alternatively make a generic <summary> element - make it an actual summary inside <article> or <body>, as well as inside <details>. Another advantage is that this is close to the semantic of the Atom "summary" element, and the hAtom microformat 'entry-summary' property.

I prefer the second solution, make the <summary> element more generic/flexible. Tantek 01:41, 22 July 2010 (UTC)
