Here are what may be minor typos in the last call XHTML Basic [1] 
"work in progress." Please feel free to ignore these suggestions if 
they are of no use to you. A section number is followed by a 
paragraph number, then a quote, and then my idea of an improvement.


Abstract par. 1

features, for example,

1.1 par 1
"...HTML 4 was designed for large devices, overlapping
     windows/frames menus, mouse input pointing device, high
     powered CPU, large power supply."
could read:
     HTML 4 was designed for large devices, overlapping
     windows, frames, menus, a mouse input pointing device, a
     high-powered CPU, and a large power supply.
or:
     HTML 4 was designed for large devices with overlapping
     windows, frames, menus, a mouse input pointing device, a
     high-powered CPU, and a large power supply.

1.2 par 3
"...The fact that most content developers are familiar with
     HTML makes it appropriate as a host language, that
     include markup modules from other languages using the
     methods described in "Building XHTML Modules" [XHTMLMOD]."
could read:
     The fact that most content developers are familiar with
     HTML makes it appropriate as a host language, given that it may
     include markup modules from other languages using the
     methods described in "Building XHTML Modules" [XHTMLMOD].

1.2 par 4

1.2 par 4
"...Extending XHTML from a common and basic set of features,
     instead of many almost identical subsets or the too large
     set of functions in HTML 4, we think is good for
     interoperability on the Web, as well as scalability."
could read:
     We think that extending XHTML from a common and basic set
     of features, instead of many almost identical subsets or
     the too-large set of functions in HTML 4, is good for
     interoperability on the Web, as well as for scalability.

Also:
"...Limited input capabilities, for example no pointing
     device, has excluded image-maps."
could read:
     Image maps are excluded because they require input
     capabilities like a pointing device.

4. par 1
"...the intention with its simple design is to use it as a
     host language."
could read:
     the intention of its simple design is for use as a
     host language.

Also, I would omit the following sentence, because "most Web
developers" use HTML and don't know about XHTML yet.
"...It is natural that XHTML is the host language, since that
     is what most Web developers are used to."

4. par 2
