There are a few typographical errors and semantic shortcomings in the
HTML 5 specification:

1. Uncommented instances of the word "versus" should be uniformly
abbreviated and marked up thus:
"<abbr title=versus>vs</abbr>." (In the 2009-04-19 edition, this would
occur on lines 216, 1219, 14527 and 38168).

2. The word "judgment" is misspelled on line 1662.

3. The word "Boolean" is an eponym and should be capitalized[1] where it
is not part of an id or href attribute.

4. The word "the" is unnecessarily repeated on lines 3935, 4981, 8752
and 8755, and repeated twice on line 11467.

5. The word "getting" is unnecessarily repeated on line 6536.

6. The word "so" is unnecessarily repeated on line 8346.

Thanks,


Lucas Larson
