-  <p>User agents should ignore the <code
-  title="attr-head-profile">profile</code> content attribute on
-  <code>head</code> elements.</p>
-  <p>When the attribute would be used as a list of <span
-  title="URL">URLs</span> identifying metadata profiles, the user
-  agent should instead always assume that all known profiles apply to
-  all pages, and should therefore apply the conventions of all known
-  metadata profiles to the document, ignoring the value of the
-  attribute.</p>
-  <p>When the attribute's value would be handled as a list of <span
-  title="URL">URLs</span> to be dereferenced, the user agent must use
-  the following steps:</p>
-  <ol>
-   <li><p><span title="split a string on spaces">Split on
-   spaces</span> the value of the <code
-   title="attr-head-profile">profile</code> attribute.</p></li>
-   <li><p><span title="resolve a url">Resolve</span> each resulting
-   token relative to the <code>head</code> element.</p></li>
-   <li><p>For each token that is successfully resolved,
-   <span>fetch</span> the resulting <span>absolute URL</span> and
-   apply the appropriate processing.</p></li> <!-- http-origin privacy

-  </ol>
   <p>The <dfn title="dom-head-profile"><code>profile</code></dfn> IDL
   attribute of the <code>head</code> element must <span>reflect</span>
   the content attribute of the same name, as if the attribute's value
-  was just a string. (In other words, the value is not <span
-  title="resolve a url">resolved</span> in any way on getting.)</p>
+  was just a string.</p>
+  <p class="note">In other words, the value is not <span
+  title="resolve a url">resolved</span> in any way on getting. This is
+  mentioned explicitly merely because in earlier versions of HTML, the
+  attribute was defined as taking a <span>URL</span>.</p>
