    [HTML5 ISSUE-206, Bug 9212] WG Decision Applied: Meta Generator
    
    Per the change proposal:
    http://www.w3.org/html/wg/wiki/ChangeProposals/Issue31cMetaGeneratorUpdated
    ... removes text related to the meta-generator in section 4.2.5.1 ("The
    value must not be used on hand-authored pages") and in section
    4.8.1.1.13 ("[...] validators are required to not show an error in this
    case [...]")
    
    In the spirit of this change, but not explicitly called out in the
    Change Proposal, I also removed the Note in section 4.2.5.1, which
    references that "generator" causes conformance checkers to silently
    ignore certain errors... and which contained the link to the list in
    4.8.1.1.13 since it no longer applies after this change.
