Editorial comments, mainly  on the examples appendix:

   These elements are different. New line characters are not normalized
   in element content. 

Hmm I know what you mean but line endings are normalized, just to #10
not to #32

   These elements are the same. New line characters and whitespace are
   normalized in attribute content.

Assuming that by "new line" you mean one or the other of #10 and #13
these are already whitespace according to the xml defn of whitespace
so the "New line characters and" is superfluous.

If you arrive in that list in appendix B in the middle there's no visual
indication whether the comments refer to the example above or below the
comment as they are equi-spaced. Could you tweak the css a bit so that
the comments moved closer to the example that they are commenting.

   This version:

   This document is also available in these non-normative formats: XML.

Both the "This Version" and "XML format"  links give 404 (I wonder if
those versions aren't information resources:-)
