Found some more grammar problems.

In the "Status of this document" section, the phrase "there are many issues,
and some are more complex than others" should have "are" added at the end.

In the definition of "module," "reuse" should have a comma after it.

In 8.9 (The section element), "explicitely" should be "explicitly"

In some things about the Common Attrubute Collection (9.2, 9.3, 9.4, maybe
others), in "Core ,Events ,I18N ,Bi-directional ,Edit ,Embedding ,Map ,and
Hypertext" the spaces should be AFTER the commas.

In 9.10 (The span element), in the first sentence, "offer" should be "offers."

In 9.11 (The strong element), "Leave in, deprecate or remove?" should have
a comma after "or."

In 11.2 (The nl element), in "5. If the nl element is de-selected, it's
contents are removed from the display," "it's" should be "its."

In 14.1 (The object element), in the list of attributes, on declare, in
14.2.2, and in 16.2, "boolean" should be capitalized.

In 14.1.3 (Rules for processing objects), in "Once the inner most object
declaration is analyzed and if the user agent cannot process it, then the
alternative text of the inner most object declaration should be processed,"
"inner most" should be "innermost."

In 14.2.2, "delaring" looks like a misspelling.  Should it be "declaring"?

In 18.1, in "Rules for style rule precedences and inheritance depend on
the style sheet language," should "precedences" be "precedence"?  That sounds
better to me (and to MS Word), but I'm not sure.

In 19.2, in "and the value is set to to N > 1," there are two "to"s.

In 19.2, in "For example, the author may wish to divide the columns into
logical groups such as the student's permanent address, phone number, and
emergency contact information. And group the student's local address, phone
and email address into another logical group," there should be commas after
"phone number" and "phone."

In 19.2, in "For example, if the author has a table with five columns and
the author divides the table into two column groups," there should be a
comma after "columns."

In 19.2, "eleemnts" should be "elements."

In 19.7, "attriubte" should be "attribute."
