aloha, steven!

as per Action-108, assigned to me at the 2010-01-20 XHTML2 telecon and
documented at:


here are the editorial fixes that need to be effected to the XHTML Vocab
document, http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml/vocab/, with the date-stamp of
1. the final word in the DD for "chapter" is misspelled: "collction" 
instead of "collection"

2. as detailed at:


the definition of the default roles in the XHTML Role Module contained 
in Section 3.1 of the Vocabulary Document, contains a repetition of the 
term being defined. since the two other definition lists do not use the 
term being defined as the first word in the definition, the following is 
an attempt to "harmonize" the definitions:

   contains the prime heading or internal title of a page. 
   indicates that the section supports but is separable from the main 
   content of resource. 
   contains meta information about the content on the page or the page 
   as a whole. 
   indicates the definition of a term or concept. 
   acts as the main content of the document. 
   indicates a collection of items suitable for navigating the document 
   or related documents. 
   indicates the content is parenthetic or ancillary to the main content 
   of the resource. 
   indicates that the section provides a search facility.

3. complementary versus secondary 

fixing the above will eliminate the need to change:

<!-- current --> 
<dd about="#complementary" property="rdfs:comment" 

 <dd about="#complementary" property="rdfs:comment"
