* 12. XHTML Client-Side Image Map Module
The chapter should be reworked with respect to the introduction of "nl".

* 14.1.1. Forward and reverse links
| Both the rel and rev attributes may be specified simultaneously.
An example should be given, additionally "foo" in both previous example
should be replaced by "next". Alternatively they could be collapsed into
just one example:
| Document B: <link href="docA" rev="next" rel="prev start"/>

* 14.1.3. Links and search engines
For alternate versions the "type" attribute contains "text/html" which AFAIK
isn't applicable to XHTML(2) documents.

* 20. XHTML Style Sheet Module
What's the "style" element supposed to do with an "rel" attribute? I guess
someone messed it up with "link".
There's an extra greater-than-sign in the beginning of the second paragraph
of 20.1.2.

=== IMHO: ===
"h1"-"h6" should have been deprecated in favor of "h". "br" and "hr" should
die, too.
I still can't see an easy way to apply an caption to an image or general
object, as proposed back in HTML+. As "img" seems to be gone (only mentioned
with "ismap" in chapter 19), an "caption" element as child of "object" might
be introduced / borrowed from "table".
I dislike the change from "q" to "quote"; I /love/ "nl".
"acronym" should be deprecated, instead "abbr" should get an attribute
(can't think of a better name than "variant") which lets you specify at
least between (spelled) initialism, (spoken) acronym and (replaced)
abbreviation.
I'm revising /TR/2002/WD-xhtml2-20020805/ which doesn't know XFrames yet.
Boy, it's lucky.
