Hello,

Two comments for your "Speech Synthesis Markup Language Version 1.0"
Candidate Recommendation [1].

The document is served ISO-8859-1 as far as I can tell from .htaccess
but the change notes say "Changed examples to use utf-8." So somewhere
in production there is an encoding mismatch. For example:

     &Acirc;&sect;

looks like this:

     &auml;&raquo;&Scaron;&aelig;&mdash;&yen;&atilde;&macr;
[etc.]

looks like this:

These caps can be lowercase to match your RFC 2119 convention:

     the processor MUST render
     The processor SHOULD also
     text MUST be rendered

But because of this use of must:

     Defining a comprehensive set of text format types is difficult
     because of the variety of languages that must be considered and
     because of the innate flexibility of written languages.

RFC 2119 markup would help. There is example XHTML and CSS in the
Manual of Style (can be adapted): http://www.w3.org/2001/06/manual/#RFC
