           Product: HTML WG

"The xlink prefix is defined as xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" 
before using xlink:href. The prefix can be defined either:

    * Once on the root <html> element.
    * Once on each <svg> element that contains one or more elements with
xlink:href attributes."

Please remove "Once on the root <html> element." and say instead that the XLink
namespace must be declared on the SVG or MathML element using an attribute in
the xlink namespace or on any of its SVG or MathML ancestors.

Having an attribute xmlns:link on an HTML element is an error in text/html and
parses into a no-namespace attribute--not into a namespace declaration.
