> An editorial comment.  I see the document using such terms as "mailto: 
> URL", "data: URL", "javascript: URL" etc.  An example is (Section 2.1.1):
>
>> The term |data:| URL refers to URLs 
>> <http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/Overview.html#url> that use the |data:| 
>> scheme.
> Considering the string before "URL" identifies the scheme, I'd 
> recommend not to include ":" (colon) their, since this character isn't 
> a part of the scheme name (but rather a delimiter).  Having "scheme 
> URL" or " 'scheme' URL " (I personally prefer the last) is OK.
