A similar issue here, is valid html. Geeks advocate it from about 1995 to 2010. 99.9999% sites not valid. Google, in its hundreds of tutorials and videos for web masters, never give a sht about it. And, html5, basically laugh at it. Killing the correctness-oriented XML.

in html4 and html5, there's the “q” Tag, for short quotes http://xahlee.info/js/html_q_tag.html
There's a “q” tag in HTML, like this: … . This tag is in HTML 4 and also HTML 5. It is supposed to be a short inline quote, such as a sentence. Browsers are supposed to render it with a “curly quotation marks” wrapped around it. See what your browser shows here: Test Page of HTML “q” Tag.

A computed style, is all the style that applies to the element. Why do you want to know computed style? For example, you want to know what color is used on a element, but the element itself usually doesn't have any CSS spec. Instead, it may inherit styles from the page's CSS or site-wide CSS ...

etymology of lemon

“worthless thing,” 1909, American English slang; from lemon (n.1), perhaps via criminal slang sense of “a person who is a loser, a simpleton,” which is perhaps from the notion of someone a sharper can “suck the juice out of.” A pool hall hustle was called a lemon game (1908); while to hand someone a lemon was British slang (1906) for “to pass off a sub-standard article as a good one.” Or it simply may be a metaphor for something which leaves a bad taste in one's mouth.
