<https://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/draft-iab-html-rfc-03.html#rfc.section.9.2>:

"This element is used in Authors' Addresses. It is rendered as an HTML 
<address> tag of class "vcard". If none of the descendant XML elements 
has an "ascii" attribute, the <address> HTML tag includes the HTML 
rendering of each of the descendant XML elements. Otherwise, the 
<address> HTML tag includes an HTML <div> tag of class "ascii" 
(containing the HTML rendering of the ASCII variants of each of the 
descendant XML elements), an HTML <div> tag of class 
"alternative-contact", (containing the text "Alternate contact 
information:"), and an HTML <div> tag of class "non-ascii" (containing 
the HTML rendering of the non-ASCII variants of each of the descendant 
XML elements)."

That's a bit weird.

a) It sounds like the ASCII variant would only contain those parts that 
actually have an ASCII variant. That's not the intent, right?

b) Shouldn't the *ASCII* variant be the "alternate"?

Best regards, Julian
