Up until recently the web developer edition of the W3C spec was published
with an alternative style sheet that increased its usability and
accessibility. (in a similar way to the WHATWG
HTML5 A technical specification for Web developers
http://developers.whatwg.org/)

This has now gone, replaced with the standard W3C styles
http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec-author-view/

This is a step backward and only serves to demonstrate the conservativeness
of the W3C and its inability to cater for different audiences.
