--- this is an issue with the description of the include pattern. X2V
will only look at encodings that are children of an ID, not at the
same level.

The following should work because it will find the node with the ID
and then find FN as a child:

<span class="item" id="john-smith-name">
<span class="fn">John Smith</span>

If we want to continue this conversation, it should be done on the dev-list
