Hello,

I work for a sensor company that does quite a deal of working implementing
filters and estimation methods in production of device
orientation/attitude.  I was reading through the W3C HTML5 spec on device
orientation and believe there is an error in the document.  The statement

"Rotations must use the right-hand convention, such that positive rotation
around an axis is clockwise when viewed along the positive direction of the
axis. "

The statement seems correct if "clockwise" is replaced with
"counter-clockwise"
