Francois,

I removed the

|This document: 
|     http://www.w3.org/XML/xml-19980210-errata 

a while ago, but I see it's back. Please take it off again. It's
confusingly similar to the
	This version:
		http://www.w3.org/.../YYYYMMDD...
idiom that we use on technical reports, which is a statement
that identifies the particular textual version of a document
with a URI... effectively saying "Expires: never" i.e.
once you GET the document at this address, we promise it
will never change and you don't need to check back to see
if it's been updated. (crud... there really should
be documentation on this in our web site. stay tuned...)

That's not the case for the Errata document.

Please remove all the stuff between the H1 and the HR from
	http://www.w3.org/XML/xml-19980210-errata
	$Date: 2000/02/17 03:30:04 $

and leave $Date$ to the signature, which should be marked up
with <address>...</address>. You can put that at the top
or the bottom of the document, but not both.

Please include
	<a href="mailto:xml-editor@w3.org">xml-editor</a>
in the signature too.

Oh... also... please cite the XML 1.0 spec by title and date,
in addition to or in stead of the URI. Use the title for the
anchor text, not the URI.

e.g. from http://www.w3.org/1999/04/WebData#XML98 :

<dt>[<a name="XML98">XML98</a>]</dt>
<dd>
W3C Recommendation 10 Feb 1998. <a
