Each person have their own habits. But I would recommend each time you  
make a comment

1. to create a separate mail for each technical issue with an  
appropriate topic on the Subject line
2. give the link to the appropriate section with the reference with  
the dated uri of the spec.
    Ex: table caption element
    http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/WD-html5-20080122/#the-caption
3. To talk about the issue in clear terms
4. To submit test cases with your issue if you want to illustrate an  
implementation flaw

(group all typos, grammar, etc. in one email)

Some personal recommendations
* Be patient for the answer it might take a long while.
* Keep a record of the issues URIs you sent to the list
   Ex: Protocol for submitting reviews of HTML5 recommendation?
   http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2008Feb/0289
* Try always to be constructive, aka propose something more than  
pointing out a flaw.
* Be aware they are people with many different cultures, goals, and  
background on this list. And it might require time to understand and  
explain things.



Hope it helps.
