probably best to go via stylesheet from schema, which is normative
so that it is easily repeatable for each version of X3D

that is my shorthand for the equivalence between the HTML syntax and the
XHTML syntax:  they both produce the same DOM tree.  so we will want to
document (following the same prose descriptions in the HTML5 recommendation)
how an HTML parser reading embedded X3D source (that might have similar
syntax relaxations) produces the same DOM tree as an XML/XHTML parser.

all the best, Don
