minor corrections to mathml recommendation text

While testing my DSSSL scripts I spotted the following
I may as well report them here, so that perhaps they get logged for any
future revision. I think they are all clearly just typos, except
perhaps 4.4.2.9: I wrote my stylesheet assuming that int
would have bvar as first child (if it had bvar at all) 
but this example has the function to be integrated first.

Bad link

chap4_1.html

HREF="AppendixF.html">Appendix F</A> in a format based on OpenMath,
      ^
Should be

="appendixF.html"

Otherwise it doesn't work on a case sensitive system.

Corrections to MathML examples

========================================
========================================

4.4.1.1
=======
<cn type="integer" base=16> AB3 </cn>
                        ^^
"16"

<cn type="rational> 12342 <sep/> 2342342 </cn>
         ^^^^^^^^^

"rational"

4.4.2.9
=========

<lambda/>
^^^^^^^^^

<lambda>

</lambda/>
^^^^^^^^^^

</lambda>


and according to 4.2.3.4  the qualifiers are supposed to come first.
so..

<lambda>
      <bvar><ci> b </ci></bvar>
      <apply>
        <int/>
        <bvar>
           <ci> x </ci>
        </bvar>
        <lowlimit>
           <ci> a </ci>
        </lowlimit>
        <uplimit>
           <ci> b </ci>
        </uplimit>
        <apply><fn><ci> f </ci></fn>
           <ci> x </ci>
        </apply>
      </apply>
    </lambda>




4.4.3.18 second example
=======================


          <apply>
<power/>
^^^^^^^^
            <ci> q </ci>
            <cn> 2 </cn>
          </apply>



4.4.3.18 third example
=======================


        <apply><and/>
          <reln><in/><ci> n </ci><ci type="set"> Z </ci></reln>
          <reln><gt/><ci> n </ci><cn> 0 </cn></reln>
        <apply>
        ^^^^^^^
/apply

        <reln>
          <eq/>
          <apply><plus/>
            <apply><power/><ci> x </ci><ci> n </ci></apply>
            <apply><power/><ci> y </ci><ci> n </ci></apply>
            <apply><power/><ci> z </ci><ci> n </ci></apply>
            ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
          </apply>
        </reln>


 <reln>
  <eq/>
  <apply><plus/>
    <apply><power/><ci> x </ci><ci> n </ci></apply>
    <apply><power/><ci> y </ci><ci> n </ci></apply>
  </apply>
  <apply><power/><ci> z </ci><ci> n </ci></apply>
</reln>

4.4.3.21 
========
<apply><conjugate>
       ^^^^^^^^^^^
conjugate/

4.4.5.5
=======

         <degree>
            <cn> 2 </cn>
         <degree>
         ^^^^^^^
/degree

  <apply><fn><ci> f <ci></fn>
                    ^^^

/ci

4.4.5.5
=======
        <bvar>
         <ci> y </ci>
      <bvar>
       ^^^^
/bvar

default rendering shows numerator \partial \partial
should be \partial^2 \partial (or \partial ^3)


4.4.7.2
========

    <apply><product/>
      <bvar>
        <ci> x </ci>
      <bvar>
      ^^^^^
/bvar
