1.)	 The word 'visibility' is mispelled in the first paragraph of
Summary. Offending sentence begins:
"They can already do this with CSS display:none and visisbility:hidden,
..."


2.)	In the summary you say:
	"... so this change will correct the hidden attribute
	section so it is in
	   accord with the ARIA specification and ARIA functionality."

	   	It's a stylistic nit, and I'm not about to fall on any
		sword, but might you rather have:

"... so this change will correct the hidden attribute section to bring
it into conformance with the ARIA ..."


3.)	The indefinite article is missing from a sentence in the
explanatory text below Example 2 in the Rationale section. The offending
sentence currently reads:
"For visual users, the text box followed by a looking glass icon is
well-known visual pattern for a search function."

	Add an 'a' ahead of "well-known" so that it reads "... icon is a
	well-known visual ..."

	Also, the commas in this paragraph are not needed.

4.)	I see four nits in the explanatory paragraph below Example 3.

	a.)	The explanatory text begins: "This example shows a variation of Example 3"
		Do you actually mean "of Example 2" ? As in "a variation
		of the former example?"
	b.)	The word 'accessibility' is mispelled in the thred
	sentence, currently "... via the accessibiltiy API, ..."

		c.)	Further in that same paragraph there's a
		grammatical number disagreement where the text currently
		reads:
		"Since the screen-reader user does not use a mouse, and
		does not trigger the mouseover, he gets an experience
		that works for him, and the sighted users gets one that
		works for her."

	Should say 'user' (singular) to match 'her' (singular.

	d.)	The last three words of this paragraph, "... and not
	all." are, imo superfluous. I suggest this would read better
	without them.

5.)	There's a repeated sentence--the same sentence ends the
paragraph following #4 above, and begins the one immediately above
"Feedback from Browser Implementers." This repeated sentence reads:
"Because authors rarely run their content through conformance checkers,
authors are likely to point at @hidden content from aria-describedby and
aria-labelledby whether or not we forbid them from doing so."

	I believe you want to drop the first instance and keep the
	second.


6.)	There's a missing 'i' in the word 'addition' immediately below
the Maciej citation, "In addtion ..." Or, is this still part of the
quote from Maciej, in which case we shouldn't correct the error? I can't
tell--unless I go read the Wiki source!


7.) Immediately above the quote from UAIG 5.7.2 there are several references
to the ARIA Working Group. Strictly speaking, of course, there's no such
thing. We have an ARIA Task Force in the PF Working Group.

8.)	Missing 'i' in two occurances of 'accessibility' in a para that starts:
	"UAIG says that hidden elements are not exposed via the
	accessibiltiy API, ..."

9.)	A little further down, a missing 'i' in the word "addition," in
a para that starts:
"In addtion, UAIG Section 5.5.1. ..."

10.)	And still a bit further down, a transposed 'it' in the phrase
'accessibility API' in the first enumerated item below a para that starts:
"When aria-labelledby and aria-describedby reference an element that IS
NOT hidden, ..."

11.)	Mispelled "implementation" in the last sentence of the paragraph
that begins:
"Name calculation is what is at issue in this CP."


12.)	In Details, in the first "Add" section, the paragraph
immediately above the one that begins:
"CAPTION: , and <figcaption>. This technique should not be used ..."
appears to end with a comma, and not a full stop.

	We want a period there.


13.)	In the "Risks" section, a missing 's' in the word "existing" and a missing
comma (or perhaps better a long dash) immediately before that word? The sentence in question reads:

"There have not been many reports of problems with this the exsiting
<label> and aria-labelledby functionality with CSS display:none and
visibility:hidden, ..."
