Great; thanks!

> most of the changes were the various error reports coming in since the last publication. I have also added a new section (2.1.3) on the property copying stuff (and also a note in section 2.1.4 that tackles a similar problem but using @resource). Comments please...

Some remarks on section 2.1.3:

* It should be made clear that (as of RDFa 1.1) this feature is only
available for HTML. Perhaps rephrasing "RDFa introduces the notion of
"Property copying" to alleviate this situation." into something like
"HTML+RDFa introduces the notion of "Property copying" to alleviate
this situation.", will do.

* Should the "at risk" warning be added until we've decided on this feature?

* The @resource used to declare the pattern is missing the octothorp
used in the @href:s. It should be:

   <div resource="#ccpattern" typeof="rdfa:Pattern">

(I'd still personally prefer to use bnode-IDs instead of frag-IDs (and
thus @resource in the links) if I were to use pattern copying; mainly
because the patterns are "throw-away" resources. But as long as the
pattern names don't conflict with other resources, it doesn't really
matter. And granted, bnode-IDs are harder to grasp.)
