Hi Edward,

Just contact me off list if I'm unable to answer your query.

All I'm saying is that some of the main differences can be solved by 
reducing the amount of different syntaxes there are availble:

Instead of having all these different syntaxes:

<p class="intro">Readable Markup</p>
<p class=intro>Readable Markup
<meta charset="utf-8"/>
<meta charset=utf-8>
<meta charset=utf-8/>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="/css/print.css" type="text/css" media="print"/>
<link rel=stylesheet href="/css/print.css" type="text/css" media=print>


We can instead just have these syntaxes allowed in the spec:

<p class="intro">Readable Markup</p>
<meta charset="utf-8"/>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="/css/print.css" type="text/css" media="print"/>

Cheers,
Dean Edridge
