Not speaking as chair...

I was looking for some RDF-related stuff in the HTML 4 draft[1].

I suggest link types included in the list of HTML types[2],
with a link to the discussion in the linking section[3].

Also, I expected to find the LINK element in the discussion
of HEAD. I suggest a "see also" link at the beginning
of the HEAD section. Hmmm... there is no text at
the beginning of 8.4 The document head.

I suggest in stead of:
	8.4 The document head
	8.4.1 HEAD element 
just:
	8.4 The document head: the HEAD element 

Also, the "8.4.5 Meta data" section seems like it is at
the same level as "8.4 The document head." So perhaps:

8.The global structure of an HTML document - The HEAD and
     BODY of a document 
...
       4.The document head: the HEAD element 
            (text of "Specifying meta data" goes here)
            1.The TITLE element 
            2.Generic Metadata: the META element 
                    Meta data profiles 

and move
            3.The title attribute 
under 8.5 "The document body" right after (or somewhere
near) ID and CLASS.

and move:
            2.Path information: the BASE element 
under  "13.Links". Hmmm... where exactly...

Hey! What are mailto: links doing in the reference manual!
I know they're in the URL tutorial, but what are they
doing here?
http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Group/9710/WD-html40-971024/struct/links.html#h-13.2.2

"Authors may create links that do not lead to another document but
instead cause email to be sent to an email address."

Yikes!

The link doesn't "cause" anything: it just links to a mailbox.
Typically, the only access users have to other people's mailbox
is to send to it, so that's the functionality that user agents
typically invoke when links to mailboxes are activated.
