Hello Glenn,

Thank you for reviewing the WOFF specification and providing your comments. Please note that the latest version is also available as Editor’s draft [2], in addition to the last published version of the WD [1].
Section 5.3 of the HTML5 spec is used to define same-origin matching algorithm - this is why HTML5 is normatively referenced in the WOFF spec. This reference can be found in section 1 of the WOFF 1.0 WD [1], and in section 2 of the latest version of the spec [2] that is soon to become CR.

Thank you,
