Both "xmlnewthing" and "xml:newthing" should be removed.

It is trying to say, having got the XML infoset element infoitem,
first grab any xml:lang attribute value for the language accessor.

XML Base and XML Namespaces processing is already provided by the XML
Infoset, so there is nothing further to do with those attributes
(xml:base, xmlns*). 

Finally remove all the attributes that start with the three
characters 'x' 'm' and 'l'.

I agree that the wording there could be improved so I will reword
this section to try to explain the existing method more clearly,
probably based on this message.
