Normally when substituting RDF resources in template rules, you place the RDF property name inside an attribute value preceded with rdf:. In the case of the textnode element, the entire node is replaced with text corresponding to the result of the value attribute.
This is useful if you want to use the html element or other elements that have text content inside them instead of in attributes. This element does nothing outside of a template.

Why does MDN look different?
MDN is changing to focus just on documenting web technologies. All the same great content is still here; we’re just changing some visual elements and navigation, to help you more quickly find the web technology docs you’re looking for.
But don’t worry, MDN and Mozilla are still together! In fact, we're updating MDN’s look to reflect Mozilla's new logo and colors.
