> "This means that the user agent must match all elements of a particular type whose xml:lang attribute matches the language ranges held by the user agent locales." I do not get this definition. Is it about all elements named X having an xml:lang attribute that contains a value out of list Y? If so it might be more clear to say something like that.

Editorial: I tried to simplify the text, but could not get as succinct
as yours. It still reads:

Elements are grouped by language:

This means that multiples of this element are allowed per language.
During processing (Step 7), the user agent must match all elements
with a particular name (e.g., icon) having an xml:lang attribute value
that matches the language ranges of the user agent locales, as well as
elements of that particular name that are unlocalized content.

I added two examples instead. Hopefully that makes it more clear.

I also moved the definitions for "One element is allowed per language"
and "Elements are grouped by language" to the Element-based
localization section and cleaned up a bit of the text. Hopefully it
makes a bit more sense now.

For the sake of the DoC, can you live with the above definition?

Kind regards,
Marcos Caceres
