My takes:

1: agreed

2: agreed

3: I prefer g and reject the others, because AssocSS defers to HTML4,
and HTML4 says in 12.3.2:

        When the LINK element links an external style sheet to a document,
        the type attribute specifies the style sheet language and the
        media attribute specifies the intended rendering medium or
        media. User agents may save time by retrieving from the network
        only those style sheets that apply to the current device.

The plural, style sheet*s*, in the second sentence clearly licenses
browsers to accept more than one style sheet.

4: agreed

5: I prefer g and reject the others, by analogy with XML attribute
processing (it is a fatal error to have duplicate attributes).

6: I prefer b and reject a.  Bad charrefs are garbage, and bad
(non-predefined) entity refs are an attempt to invoke a feature that's
not supported.

7: I'd like to see the requirements tightened here.  Specifically:

        href MUST be a LEIRI

        type MUST have the syntax of a RFC 2045 media type

        media MUST be a Name or comma-separated list of Names

        charset MUST be a Name

        alternate MUST be "yes" or "no"

or the PI is ignored.  Alternately I can live with ignoring just the
bad pseudo-attribute.

8: prefer b.

9: prefer a.

10: reject a, can live with b, prefer c iii or c iv if my version of 7
gets accepted.

11: prefer b iii 2

12: prefer a.

13: prefer a.

14: prefer a.

15: prefer a, can live with c.

Go, and never darken my towels again!           John Cowan
