We just have to make sure we always point to the same HTML5 specification in all our spec.
Currently [HTML5] seems to cite "at http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-html401-19991224" but the link goes to http://www.w3.org/TR/2012/CR-html5-20121217/

Isn't this just re-stating the precedence of local markup over global rule?
