The Table of Contents doesn't allow authors to easy locate the section about
the data-* attribute. The natural way to find it is to search for the string
'data-'. Therefore, please add that string to the heading.

As well, the heading of section is  'Embedding custom non-visible
data', whereas all other heading under   "3.2.3 Global attributes" are 
referred to as "The FOO attribute". Therefore, the seciotn abotu data-* should
have a similar title.

Acceptable variants I could think of:

" The data-* attribute (for custom non-visible data)

or, at minimum

" Embedding custom non-visible data (the data-* attribute)
