Dear Synchronized Multimedia Working Group,

  http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-SMIL2-20050201/refs.html is a horrible
mess; at least 12 references are outdated (e.g., MathML, RFC1766, UAAG,
URI, UTF8, XFORMS, XHTML10, XHTML+SMIL, XML10, XSCHEMA, XPTR, and
draft-ietf-avt-rtp-mime-00), it does not distinguish between normative
and informative references, it sometimes gets URI policies wrong (e.g.,
http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG/ is the latest SVG Rec, not the latest version
of SVG 1.1) and is generally inconsistent with other technical reports,
many of which comply with http://www.w3.org/2001/06/manual/#ref-section.
The section further has character encoding issues, e.g., it's "Håkon"
rather than "HÃ¥kon".

http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/REC-SMIL2-20050107/refs.html seems to be
subject to most of these problems too (and claims to be part of a PER
rather than a Recommendation...), please change the Working Draft to
include reasonable references and publish normative corrections to the
corresponding section in SMIL 2.0.

The references checker http://www.w3.org/2004/07/references-checker-ui
will help you to spot outdated references.

regards.
