My comment was:

| Dear Scalable Vector Graphics Working Group,
|   http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-SVGMobile12-20050413/attributeTable.html
| is not very useful, one cannot easily go from the table to the property
| or attribute definition, please change the draft to make attributes and
| properties links to their definitions, see
|   http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/propidx.html
|   http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/index/attributes.html
| for popular examples of this.

I want markup like

  <a href="struct.html#ClassAttribute>...
  <a href="animate.html#FillAttribute>...

in attributeTable.html. If attributeTable.html's source code does not
match /#FillAttribute/ and /#ClassAttribute/ the Working Group can be
fairly certain that it misunderstood my request and should request
further clarification, in case there is still any doubt about what I
ask for.

I would appreciate if you could elaborate on why my comment obviously
does not qualify as a minimal effort of expressing this clearly, what
the Working Group understood my request to be, and why there wasn't any
doubt about the Working Group's interpretation. If the Working Group
provides this information, I'm sure I can find a way to avoid such
misunderstandings in the future.
