*Please* don't, at least for this particular Working Draft.  We know
this document sucks, as clearly stated in the status section, this
document should in no way be considered stable and there are numerous
editorial work to be done.  Nevertheless the WG thought that it would
be better to publish early so that people can know what's going on.

At this stage I'd request poeple don't care much about obvious
typographical errors, we're fixing them anyway.  If you are kind
enough to help us fix those simple typos, please make sure to
send it to www-html-editor so that editors can keep track of them.
I'm not willing to see a flood of typo reports and subsequent
unsubscribe messages on this mailing list (please send unsubscribe
request to www-html-request@w3.org, btw).  Spreading error reports
here and there would make error tracking harder, and more importantly
useful discussion on this list would be disturbed.

The WG will strive to publish XHTML2 more often to keep you informed,
preferably once a month, even if the document is not stable yet.
We may not have enough bandwidth to reply to all error reports
individually, but hopefully errors will be corrected in subsequent
drafts quickly.

You may copy error reports on Recommendations to this list, however.

I appreciate your cooperation.

Thanks,
