Dear Sir

I have a few comments on your document /HTML 5 and XHTML 5 - one
vocabulary, two serializations/ [1], as it stands on 7 July 2009.

In the section "Polyglot Documents", the example contains the code
|<cite>Marshall McLuhan</cite>|. However, as Marshall McLuhan is not a
piece of work, the |cite| element is not correct to mark up his name.
(Also, the quote "The medium is the massage." contains a typo: "massage"
should be "message".)

In the Syntax section, the "attribute minimization" row, it might be
appropriate to mention the syntaxes |<input disabled="">| and |<input
disabled=''>| (both HTML and XHTML). [2]

In the same section, it might be better to drop the "id attribute"
row—the |xml:id| attribute isn't mentioned in the HTML5 specification
and doesn't seem to be supported by mainstream browsers.

Apart from those nits, it looks like an excellent document.

Hoping these comments will help to further improve it
Ms2ger
