Hi there,
In production [7] "Nmtoken ::= (NameChar)+" I think there may be a typo and
the production should read "Nmtoken ::= (Names)+".  I did a search of the
1.0 spec productions and find no other production which utilizes the Names
token.  I also find no reference to this in the errata sheet.

Also another question:
Production rules [9] and [10], the rules specifically allow both the single
quote (') and the double quote (") as the literal delimiter.  In both
productions, the delimiter character is also allowed inside the strings
which they delimit.  Is this perhaps backwards?
Eg: should
[9] EntityValue ::= '"' ([^%&"] | PEReference | ...
actually be
[9] EntityValue ::= '"' ([^%&'] | PEReference | ...

The same question holds true for the converse.  Again, I do not see anything
in the errata but admit that this may be a mis-understanding on my part.

Cheers,
