I understand the problem, but I'm not sure of the solution. The terms "local
name" and "namespace name" are surrounded with square brackets (since they are
abstract properties). Does the "s" go inside the brackets or outside?

IOW, should we write:
    "It has two attribute information items whose [local names] are type and
href, and whose [namespace names] are http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink."

Or:
    "It has two attribute information items whose [local name]s are type and
href, and whose [namespace name]s are http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink."

Or perhaps restructure the sentence to avoid this issue.
