   I see you fixed the error with "Section 10.3" under "Known Errors",
to point (properly) to "Section 13.6.1" instead (which is good to
know).

   I note that although "Section 16.2.2" under "Known Errors" says
"Values for marginwidth and marginheight must be 0 pixels or more, not
1 pixel or more.", the actual error is "The value must be greater than
one pixel.".

   Why is there an utterly useless directive to change the same word to
exactly itself, in "Section 6.16" under "Minor typographical errors"?
Witness: 'Change "cancelling" to "cancelling".'.

   Observe the misspelled word "chang" (should be "change") in "Section
3.3.3" under "Clarifications". Also, note that this change requires
that the immediately following "is" be changed to "are" (e.g., "Whether
the element's tags are optional.").

   I've only just begun to go over the HTML 4.0 Specification Errata.
I'll send more errors and oddities as I find them.
