Excellent work!

On colour blindness, as far as I recall, the guideline says not to use  
colour as the only source of information. Since all cells that are coded  
red/green also contain the words pass/fail, I think we are in the clear.  
Regardless, I still prefer the red/green colouring :-)

A few editorial comments:

	- s/HTML working Group/XHTML2 Working Group/
	and the correct link is http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/

	- The title of the RDFa spec is "RDFa in XHTML: Syntax and Processing"  
and not "RDFa Syntax and Processing rules"; maybe that wasn't the  
intention, but it looks like that is what it is being called. This ought  
to be corrected in a couple of places.
	- I think it is worth mentioning the exit criterion "At least two  
implementations have been demonstrated that pass all tests in the test  
suite." in the introduction.
	- in: However, the report does not attempt to test the conformance of the  
	- s/freezed/frozen/

So how about this for a replacement paragraph:

The goal of this report is to verify that <em>RDFa in XHTML: Syntax and  
Processing</em> [RDFa Syntax] is implementable; consequently, the report  
should not be seen as a conformance test of the implementations. The exit  
criteria for the specification require that "At least two implementations  
have been demonstrated that pass all tests in the test suite." Following  
the decision from 2008-07-31 by the RDF in HTML Task Force [RDFHTML-TF],  
testing has been done using a frozen version of the [RDFa Test Cases].

	- s/server an take/server and take/
	- s/A couple of tools that produce and/or consume RDFa is available,  
already./A couple of tools that produce and/or consume RDFa are available  

Best wishes,
