Based on one reading, here are minor typo reports for the RDF Model and
Syntax PR [1], which as far as I saw, is remarkably free from errors. Sorry
for the beginner's questions, and for any mistakes introduced here. Quotes
are indented four spaces; comments and questions are in brackets.


1. Introduction, line 211
    to facilitate the definition of metadata RDF will have
[A comma would help.]                       ^
    to facilitate the definition of metadata, RDF will have


2.1.- 2.1.1.
    anchor ID
[On line 286, ID is capitalized; on line 315, id is lowercase. I would
choose caps.]


2.2., line 493
    [15] string         ::= (any XML text, with "<", ">", and "&" escaped)
                                                         ^
and 6., line 1710
    [6.24] string         ::= (any XML text, with "<", ">", and "&" escaped)
                                                           ^
[Are "'" and """ escaped also?]


2.2.1.
line 538
    more than one ID attribute
                  ^
[Could be TT here like ID is elsewhere.]

line 596
    this metadata author is using to define her use
                                             ^
    this metadata author is using to define her or his use
[I'd say gender here is unknown, and could be skipped or replaced with "the".]

lines 604-632
    The complete XML document containing the description above would be:
    <?xml version="1.0"?>
                       ^
[Are these three examples "complete," or do they need "standalone='yes'"?]


6.
line 2017
    Gramatically
        ^
    Grammatically

line 2170
    recent articles - library science
                     ^
    recent articles -- library science
[Maybe that could match the double-dashes on lines 868 and 2810.]


Also, maybe all prose example sentences can end in a period (.). (Lines
332, 383, 571, 991, 972, 1079, 1297, 1305, and 1525 have none.)
