   <h2>Changes from RDF 2004</h2>
+    <li>2012-05-09: Removed an example from the conformance section that didn't make sense any more with the modified <code>rdf:XMLLiteral</code>. Added some new issue boxes.</li>
     <li>2012-05-09: <code><a>rdf:XMLLiteral</a></code> no longer requires lexical forms to be canonicalized, and the value space is now defined in terms of [[DOM-LEVEL-3-CORE]] (<a href="">ISSUE-13</a>)</li>
     <li>2012-05-09: Removed Section 3 <em>RDF Vocabulary IRI and Namespace</em>; its contents will be folded into the RDF Schema document</li>
     <li>2012-05-02: Renamed “graph equivalence” to “<a>graph isomorphism</a>” (<a href="">ISSUE-86</a>)</li>
