For any future editions of the N3 specification currently at
(http://www.w3.org/TeamSubmission/2008/SUBM-n3-20080114/), there are
a number of editorial errors.  Here are some from the Introduction
and Grammar sections:

In the Introduction section:

* It says:

     This language has ben developed ...

* It says:

     This is a language which is a compact and readable alternative ...

   (That "which" should be "that.")

* It says:

     The developer learning N3 is invited to try the A tutorial ...

* It says

     ... URI abbreviation using prefixes which are bound to a
     namespace (using @prefix) a bit like in XML...

   (A comma seems to be missing before "a bit" (that the "which"
   should be "that" or should have a comma before it).)

In the Grammar section:

* It says:

     The grammar of N3 is defined by a context free grammar:
       * Context-free grammar in N3

    (The (first) reference to "context free grammar" should have
    the hyphen too.)

* It says:

     N3 files are encoded in UTF-8 (See RFC2279), in normalized in
     Normalization Form C.

   (Note the second occurrence of "in.")

* It says:

     A full 32 unicode implementation would normally be preferable.

Also, the formatting of the non-normative text with both a
reduced-contrast color _and_ a reduced-contrast background color
makes it harder to read.  Please consider ????

Additionally, the text of the third paragraph of the "Status ..." section
is in a fairly pale gray.

(Plain text sometimes corrupted to HTML "courtesy" of Microsoft Exchange.) [F]
