I feel like I'm using the editor's draft, but I'm not sure:
	http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/DataAccess/rq23/

Typos:

"The following query has a solution: note that the query processor does 
not have to have any understanding of the values in the space of the 
datatype because, in this case, lexical form and dadatype URI both 
match exactly."

s/dadatype/datatype/ though this made me laugh :)

"""2.2 Graph Patterns

The building blocks of queries are triple patterns.  Syntactically, a 
SPARQL triple pattern is a subject, predicate  and object delimited by 
parentheses. The example in section 2.1 shows a triple pattern with a 
subject variable (the variable book),  a predicate of dc:title and an 
object variable (the variable title).
( ?book dc:title ?title )"""

(All the examples in 2.3 use parens) I think with turtle, triple 
patterns are no longer as stated?

""Reification vocabulary for the three predicates rdf:subject,  
rdf:predicate and rdf:object can be abbreviate using "<< >>".""

s/abbreviate/abbreviated/

========

Quibbles:

""" Other

  The keyword "a" can be used as a predicate in a triple pattern and is 
short for rdf:type."""

I would suggest removing this abbreviation. It's not all that helpful 
and takes us a bit further away from RDF/XML (though typed nodes might 
be stretched into analogues).

Cheers,
Bijan.
