- Mark properties: 'mark-before', 'mark-after', and 'mark'[1]

The description of 'attr()' should be removed. This is going to be 
addressed in the CSS3 module: Values and Units[2].


- Phonetics: 'phonemes', '@phonetic-alphabet and 'content'[3]

The first example is incorrect. In CSS you can't use character 
references. You will have to use escaped character references[4] or 
Unicode. I guess escaped character references should be used since the 
encoding of the specification is us-ascii.

The second example should probably read:

   <acronym title="World Wide Web Consortium">W3C</acronym>

... with capitalized first letters.

(Why is ACRONYM used by the way? It has been removed in future versions 
of XHTML and does only cause confusion. Furthermore, people don't agree 
on what it should stand for and how it should be used, which was 
probably the reason it was removed.)
