Hi,

Referring to http://www.w3.org/TR/2001/REC-xhtml11-20010531

Section 3:

  there is an unmatched bracket in the second paragraph.

  the last module is introduced via "XHTML also uses the Ruby Annotation
  module as defined in [RUBY]". Since e.g. XHTML 1.0 doesn't use this
  module, it should the "XHTML 1.1 also ..." or "The XHTML 1.1 document
  type"

Section 2.1.1:

  the last paragraph states (as in XHTML 1.0) about the XML declaration:
  "Such a declaration is required when the character encoding of the
   document is other than the default UTF-8 or UTF-16." 

  According to Philippe Le Hegaret this is wrong and subject for the XML
  1.0 SE errata. The sentence should be

  "Such a declaration is required when the character encoding of the
   document is other than the default UTF-8 or UTF-16 and no encoding 
   was determined by a higher-level protocol."

  I reported this to xml-editor@w3.org but got no reply till today.
  Maybe this should be discussed with the XML WG and corrected in
  XHTML 1.0 Second Edition.

appendix b.1:

  Why has the normative reference to ISO 8879:1986 (SGML) been commented
  out?

general:

  several passages use element tt where they should use code.
