In the terminology sidebar, use "code elements" rather than "codes".
This is the terminology of ISO 639 and 3166, and 4242bis will switch to
it as well.

The second note:  "If you have been using RFC 1766 or RFC 3066 you should
not need [...]"; for "should" read "do".

The "az-Latn" example explains that Azeri can also be written in the
Arabic script, but the sidebar example is az-Cyrl.  That's correct
but confusing.

"macrolanguage" does not have a hyphen.

"superseded" has two s's, unlike the "superceded" in the penultimate
