Thanks, I've entered these into the last-call comments tracker for
review and an official response. My unofficial comments are below:

That's true, we are definitely not passing HTML documents, only those
that validate as XHTML Basic 1.1 (... really, or XHTML MP 1.2).

Good point, since we also specify that you should include these sizes
in pixels on img tags, which looks contradictory. I think the
reasoning here is that it's desirable to not depend on a particular
screen size, but, images are going to have a size in pixels no matter
what. Go ahead and state this to help the browser.

Good points, I'll bring this up. The rationale for script may simply
have been that it's notably harder to determine what whitespace is
extra in javascript, and that <script> may have some unknown language
anyway. CSS: partly the same reasoning. It deserves another look.

Yeah that's a reasonable edit -- the wording is a little redundant,
though clarifies exactly what's being looked for.
