Minor editorial fixes needed in the HTML 5 draft:

1. Look for "[[", as in "[[Get]]", replace with linked "get()" or whatever

2. I wish you wouldn't keep referring to "HTML4" "XHTML1" "HTML5" "XHTML5" 
"XHTML2" "DOM2" etc. and would instead use unambiguous references to specific 
documents, versions or version families. For example, there is very 
inconsistent use of "XHTML", "XHTML1", "XHTML 1.x", "XHTML 1.1" ... It's OK to 
say 1.x but if you just say "XHTML1" I have no idea if you mean just 1.0 or 
1.1 or both.

3. Fill in the references section to at least include the docs you've 
referenced already.

4. Make the Latest Version link at the top of the document, 
http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/, redirect to 
http://dev.w3.org/cvsweb/~checkout~/html5/spec/Overview.html or whatever, 
rather than being 404 / Not Found.

5. Section 1.3.1 typo: "numberic" -> "numeric"
