aloha, steven!

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

http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/tracker/actions/108

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
2009-11-17 
 
1. the final word in the DD for "chapter" is misspelled: "collction" 
instead of "collection"

2. as detailed at:

http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/wiki/Talk:Role/Vocab#Editorial_Changes

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:

banner 
   contains the prime heading or internal title of a page. 
complementary 
   indicates that the section supports but is separable from the main 
   content of resource. 
contentinfo 
   contains meta information about the content on the page or the page 
   as a whole. 
definition 
   indicates the definition of a term or concept. 
main 
   acts as the main content of the document. 
navigation 
   indicates a collection of items suitable for navigating the document 
   or related documents. 
note 
   indicates the content is parenthetic or ancillary to the main content 
   of the resource. 
search 
   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" 
 datatype="xsd:string"><span>secondary</span> 

to:
 
 <dd about="#complementary" property="rdfs:comment" 
 datatype="xsd:string"><span>complementary</span>
