Gavin,

minor issues 

- the references to RDF Concepts are all to the Mercurial repo version. It should point at the TR document (probably to the short-named URI)
- the LC comment period is said to end on the 15 August. With all the summer vacations coming up, I would think that 1st of September, or even 15th of September, would be a better idea. (this requires a WG decision)
- refrenced -> referenced (Section 2.2, first sentence)
- equalivate -> equivalent (Section 2.4, 2nd bullet item following the 5th paragraph)
- diffrent -> different (Section 2.4, paragraph following a note)
- in section 2.5.1, there is a reference "absolute IRI, a relative IRI or prefixed name." that does not seem to lead anywhere within the document
- in section 2.5.2., the text says "Turtle has syntax for writing integer values, arbitrary precision decimal values, double precision floating point values and boolean values.". The section is entitled "Numbers", but boolean is not a a number (and has its own subsection). I would propose to remove 'and boolean values'
- Appendix A says: "The character encoding of the embedded Turtle will match the HTML documents encoding.". Isn't this in contradiction to the fact that Turtle must be UTF-8? Formally, that means a turtle parser cannot just take the content of the <script> element and parse it, it has to make it sure that it is converted into UTF-8 first. Propose: add a remark to A.2 that the content of the <script> element must be converted to UTF-8 before being parsed by a Turtle parser.
- Appendix B, Media type: I am surprised to see 'Ian Davis' as a contact person for the media type. Any specific reason for that? Note that Eric's name already appears down the line as contact person, so I am not even sure why there are two (and different) entries. Propose to remove Ian's name.
- Appendix B says: "No widely deployed applications are known to use this media type. It may be used by some web services and clients consuming their data.". That sounds funny. First of all, I would consider LOD endpoints (eg, DBPedia) as widely deployed, although measures differ. But I do not really see the value of the second sentence...

Cheers

Ivan
