1.1: "Application developers familiar with earlier its ancestors will be 
comfortable working with XHTML 2." should read "Application developers 
familiar with its earlier ancestors will be comfortable working with XHTML 2."

3.1.1, item 4: The link reading "Appendix C" is linked to Appendix E.

3.1.1, XHTML 2.0 example document:

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2002/06/xhtml2" xml:lang="en" >

Is the trailing space before the close of this tag there for a reason?

8.2: ACRONYM has never had a clear definition in previous specifications, 
and this draft compounds the issue by citing two dictionary meanings, 
treats neither of them as normative, and offers no normative 
alternative.  Due to the ambiguity of the definition of this term in the 
general English lexicon, this specification should offer a clearly stated 
normative definition.  Or alternatively, this tag should be deprecated in 
favor of ABBR, since the normative definition of ABBR ("a text fragment 
[that] is an abbreviation") could equally apply to ACRONYM.

8.13: The sample of styling the content of <LINE> via CSS uses the 
counter-increment and counter-reset properties, both of which have been 
dropped from CSS-2 Revision 1.  See 
<http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/WD-CSS21-20020802/changes.html#q82>  counter 
properties also do not, to my knowledge, appear in any public CSS-3 document.

This sample code incorrectly uses a "name" attribute instead of an "id" 
<a name="anchor-one">This is the location of anchor one.</a>
