Minor editorial corrections for REC-xml-20040204.xml?

Dear Receiver,

I report two small editorial problems with the XML spec.

#1) First, I was kindly requested to pass the information that

<quote>
The non-normative XML version
http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml/REC-xml-20040204.xml (of the page
http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml/) does not work. The error message is: "Error
loading stylesheet: A
network error occured loading an XSLT
stylesheet:http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml/xmlspec.xsl"
I hope you can fix this soon.
</quote>

This message was passed to me in Finnish via email, from Mr. Kim Hokkanen
(khokkanen@kapsi.fi) -- apparently he didn't find the editorial contact
details quick enough.

When I tried to open the page myself
(http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml/REC-xml-20040204.xml, from a laptop running
XP Pro, SP2 and IE 6), I get the following error message:

"
The XML page cannot be displayed
Cannot view XML input using XSL style sheet. Please correct the error and
then click the Refresh button, or try again later.
The download of the specified resource has failed.
"

Without investigating this, I'd say that the problem is simply due to the
agent's limitations in manipulating XSLT. But, as said, I was requested to
pass you the message.

#2) Second, (when trying out the above, and) looking at the source
(http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml/REC-xml-20040204.xml, line 38), I happened
to notice, however, that the document includes XML Spy's proprietary
processing instructions, which might not respect the policy of names
introduced in the very document... [using the xml prefix in names; see the
product 17 in subsection 2.6 of the spec]). But of course, the document is
non-normative.

Best regards,
