Some editorial comments to HTML 4.0 (draft of 8 July 1997)

p. 14, the word "dissuasive" will lead to confusion.  I believe you wish
to mean "fails to be persuasive" whereas it actually means "is persuasive
of a negative conclusion."  Recommend you use plainer language, here.

p. 17, The bald assertion that numeric entities "end with a
semicolon" is inaccurate.  See note at p. 30 and fix p. 17

p. 52.  Where it says "englobing" I believe you mean to say "enclosing."
