Some thoughts on various new/updated articles:

1) 
http://www.w3.org/International/questions/qa-html-encoding-declarations.en.php#quick

a) XHTML 1.x served with text/html MIME type:
The 'meta' element must be closed with a trailing slash:
<meta http-equiv="Content-type" content="text/html;charset=UTF-8"/>

b) XHTML 1.x served as XML:
In a XML declaration, 'encoding' ist not really an attribute. The phrase 
would better read:
Use the encoding pseudo-attribute…

c) The same applies below at 
http://www.w3.org/International/questions/qa-html-encoding-declarations.en.php#xmldeclaration
encoding pseudo-attribute


2) 
http://www.w3.org/International/questions/qa-choosing-encodings.en.php#avoid

Proposal: Documents /must not/ use… ('not' also in italics)


3) http://www.w3.org/International/questions/qa-escapes.en.php#cssescapes

Proposal: Add the advice to always close NCRs in CSS with a trailing space.

The footer says: Content first published 2010-08-12
but the article has been around for years before (sans part about CSS).

Regards,
Gunnar
