11.5 urlencoding -- tiny clarifications needed

Bullet #1 says:
"Each element that has one text node child is selected for inclusion."

This sentence really ought to say "one (and only one) text child node".

The sub-bullet under #2 says:

"each octet in turn replaced by %HH, where HH represents the
hexadecimal notation for the octet value"

This sentence really ought to mandate either upper-case or lower-case
letters for the hex value. (Is it %AB or %ab ?) The following example
uses upper-case, as does HTML 4.01.

Finally, a question. According to the algorithm in this section, do '%'
characters in form data need to be escaped or not?

Thank you,
