Issue 1.

The following is a heading in Chapter 9:[1]

# 9.4.2 Inline formatting context

s/context/contexts/


Issue 2.

8.6 (The box model for inline elements in bidirectional context) says:[2]

   # For each line box, UAs must take the inline boxes generated for each
   # element and render the margins, borders and padding in visual order
   # (not logical order).

   # When the element's 'direction' property is 'ltr', the left-most
   # generated box of the first line box in which the element appears has
   # the left margin, left border and left padding, and the right-most
   # generated box of the last line box in which the element appears has
   # the right padding, right border and right margin.

   # When the element's 'direction' property is 'rtl', the right-most
   # generated box of the first line box in which the element appears has
   # the right padding, right border and right margin, and the left-most
   # generated box of the last line box in which the element appears has
   # the left margin, left border and left padding.

Pedantic I know, given that the first paragraph makes a fair attempt to
qualify which boxes we're talking about, but "the left-most generated
box of the first line box in which the element appears" need not in fact
arise from the element in question when this phrase is taken at face
value; and so strictly speaking this text needs clarification.
