[Bug 9356] Presumably "Errors that encourage a correct understanding of the spec" should read "an incorrect" instead of "a correct".

Well, this is just stylistic, so I won't object if you reclose.  But you're
using the word "Errors" inconsistently in the section headings here, and it
confused me on first reading.  Some of them use "error" to mean "the use of
erroneous markup by authors" (e.g., "Errors that can result in infoset
coercion"), while others use "error" to mean "error report by a validator" or
"the fact that the spec declares something an error" or something (e.g., this
one).

It would be clearer if you only used the former, since that's what "error"
normally means: an erroneous action, not a declaration of error.  Or you could
just reword to not use "errors" in the headings.

In this particular case it seemed like you were saying that authors' commission
of errors encouraged correct understanding of the spec.  I assumed that you
meant their errors would be read by other authors copy-pasting markup, and
encourage those other authors to interpret the spec incorrectly.
