There's no way (to my knowledge) to specify that any given example is focused on the use of the element or one of its attributes. It would be helpful if there were a way to specify what an example is supposed to be exemplifying.
it's a fair point. Back in the olden days when I was working on http://www.amazon.com/LaTeX-Graphics-Companion-The-Edition/dp/0321508920,
we tagged each example with a list of macro names (in that case) for which we wanted an entry in the index at this point. The same
technique would apply here - yes, it shows a <p>, but its not an especially interesting use of <p> worth showing people.
One could literally use index terms for the job, inside <exemplum>
But the amount of retrofitting work needed is fearsome.
