Dear HTML Editor,

The specification for HTML 4.01 (http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/) at
section 8.1.1, recommends to use RFC1766 values for language identifier. The
actual reference entry reads:

"[RFC1766]:
"Tags for the Identification of Languages"
<http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc1766.txt>, H. Alvestrand, March 1995. RFC1766 is
expected to be updated by
<http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-alvestrand-lang-tags-v2-00.txt>,
currently a work in progress."

The second link does not point to a valid page. Also RFC1766 has been
deprected in favor of RFC3066. Would it be possible to mention this in the
errata document?

Another thing: back in section 8.1.1 one of the example reads:

'"i-navajo": the Navajo language spoken by some Native Americans. '

This example is now incorrect (even with RFC1766) since the ISO codes have
been updated to include Navajo as a two-letter codes ('nv')
(http://www.loc.gov/standards/iso639-2/langcodes.html).


Best regards,
