Hi Marcos,

All changes approved, except the 2 below:

It ends up to the same logical conclusion, no? If you substitute "support" in the second sentence you get:
"A user agent MUST attempt to implement: ....". Surely, 'attempt to' is extra, no?

In fact, I'm saying that the property should be called "author information", rather than "author name".
