I don't know if these points have been mentioned before, but...

The recent xhtml 1.0 draft [1] does not indicate how a user agent should
process a document wherein style sheets are referenced by *both* link
elements and PIs. I would assume it should treat these mechanisms as
equivalent, and simply process the styles sheets in order -- is that a
correct assumption? 

In looking for clarification, I noted that the text of the draft [1] does
not mention the document "Associating Style Sheets with XML ..."  [2],
although it appears as a reference in Appendix E.  There, indeed, appear
to be several other "references" in [1] (CC/PP, CSS2, RFC2396, RFC2376,
RFC2396, RFC2068, RFC2045, that are not actually referred to in the text.
I know this section is only informative, but this is a tad confusing, and
could easily be fixed.
