--- Comment #8 from Eliot Graff <eliotgra@microsoft.com> 2011-03-04 19:59:01 UTC ---
Per comment 6, ISSUE 2, the following sentence is deleted: 
]] 
However, because the mime-type is not necessarily text/html, polyglot markup
does not use <meta content=”text/html; charset”>.
[[

This negates comment 6, ISSUE 1.

For comment 6, ISSUE 3 the draft now says:
]]
When polyglot markup uses UTF-16, it must include a BOM indicating
little-endian UTF-16 or big-endian UTF-16, per XML, Character Encoding in
Entities. [XML10]
[[

With a link to Character Encoding in Entities from XML 1.0.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I do not see any action required on my part for
comment 7.

Thanks so much!

Eliot
