Hello,

I'm here to suggest another addition to XHTML Basic [1] source code.

1. There's no <?xml?> declaration. It's okay because the spec itself
   is in pure ASCII. However people who translate wouldn't care to
   insert such declaration into their translation (I'm saying this
   because I've looked thru all XHTML Basic translations). There also
   should be the encoding attribute which value will be changed if
   appropriate.

2. Line 801: an <abbr title="Extensible Markup Language">XML</abbr>
   This look strange because in all the other cases you use acronym
   for XML. I'm going to change this in my translation of XHTML Basic,
   am I right? When the translation is ready do I have to announce it
   anywhere apart from the w3c-translators@w3.org?

In my opinion the above-mentioned things really need to be
standartized somewhere at the W3C.
