While translating the Specification, I stumbled on some minor errors; here they

============== Stretching operators, fences and accents:

Last rule:

In the case of an embellished stretchy operator, the preceding
rule applies to the stretchy operator at its core.

Shouldn't it read :
... the preceding rule applies to the mo element at its core.

3.2.8 String literals (ms) <http://www.w3.org/TR/MathML2/chapter3.html#presm_ms> Description

Second paragraph, the sentence:

For example, <ms>&amp</ms> represents a string literal containing a single
character, &,...

Shouldn't it read:
For example, <ms>&amp;</ms> represents...

============== Attributes <http://www.w3.org/TR/MathML2/chapter3.html#N17796>

The phrase begining with:

In addition to the attributes listed below, malignmark element allows...

Shouldn't it read:

In addition to the attributes listed below, *maligngroup* element allows...

============== Union (union) <http://www.w3.org/TR/MathML2/chapter4.html#contm_union>

Second paragraphe:

The union attribute takes the definitionURL and encoding attributes, which can
be used to override the
default semantics.

Shouldn't it read:
The union *element* takes...

7.1.2 Top-level math element

In definition of the display attribute, the phrase:


The display attribute replaces the deprecated mode element. [...]

Shouldn't it read:
The display attribute replaces the deprecated mode *attribute*.

C.2.3.22 MMLdefinition: arg

In Signature:


Shouldn't it read: (complex)-&gt;real

MathMLFencedElement Interface


A string representing the opening-fence...

Shouldn't it read: A string representing the *closing-fence*...

In Characters and glyphs ISOTECH <http://www.w3.org/TR/MathML2/isotech.html>

The glyph supposed to correspond to "prime" seems to be a quadruple prime; this
is image 02032.png.

In Characters and glyphs MMLEXTRA <http://www.w3.org/TR/MathML2/mmlextra.html>

Description of "LeftTriangleBar: not left triangle, vertical bar" doesn't
correspond to image

Shouldn't it read: left triangle, vertical bar

Description of "Product": alias for &prod

Shouldn't it read: alias for &prod;

That's all!
