Hi, Bjoern-

Thanks for catching these errors. We have correct the typos, and changed the
offending wording for  accessKey to:

"From a formal processing model perspective, accessKey is a keydown event
listener on the document which behaves as if stopPropagation() and
preventDefault() have both been invoked in the capture phase."

If this does not satisfy your concern, please respond promptly.

Thanks-
Doug, on behalf of the SVG WG
