Hi, in the "XHTML™ Modularization 1.1 - Second Edition" I admire the
attempt to catch what used
to be a moving target (RFC 5646) with a reference to BCP 47.  This
reference now states:

"BCP 47, consisting of RFC 5646: Tags for Identifying Languages"

Is that as it should be?  Actually BCP 47 consists of two RFCs, RFC
5646 and RFC 4647.  RFC 4647
covers the "matching" stuff in the former BCP 47 consisting of RFC
3066, before it was obsoleted
by the RFC 4646 and 4647 pair.  The actual BCP 47 pair consists of RFC
5646 and 4647.

If it's not only me and a bad case of "DEnglish", maybe replace
"consisting of" by "containing"
in the 3rd edition.  If asterisks in language tags are relevant for
XHTML 1.1 this would make it
worse, and the reference should actually also mention RFC 4647.
