In the XML 1.0, 4th ed. and XML 1.1, 2nd ed. specifications I discovered 
the following two passages which seem to be incorrect:

Section 4.1, WFC: Entity Declared, last paragraph:
"... non-validating processors are not obligated to to read ..."
should be changed to
"... non-validating processors are not obligated to read ..."

In section 5.2, last paragraph:
"Applications which require DTD facilities not related to validation (such 
as the declaration of default attributes and internal entities that are or 
may be specified in external entities ) SHOULD use validating XML processors."
the first "not" seems to be wrong and the sentence contains a superfluous 
space before the closing bracket. It should be changed to:
"Applications which require DTD facilities related to validation (such as 
the declaration of default attributes and internal entities that are or may 
be specified in external entities) SHOULD use validating XML processors."

It also appears to me inconvenient that in section 3.3.2, prod. 60 the 
"WFC: No < in Attribute Values" and "WFC: No External Entity References" 
have no visible clue, where the text of these WFCs can be found.  The WFCs 
are linked correctly, but no reference is available for the reader of a 
print-out of the spec.  Therefore I suggest amending the text of the links 
with "see prod. 41". For consistency, I would also like to suggest changing 
the order of the WFCs to match those of prod. 41 and moving them to the end 
of the list. The list of VCs and WFCs of prod. 60 should look like:
   [VC: Required Attribute]
   [VC: Attribute Default Value Syntactically Correct]
   [VC: Fixed Attribute Default]
   [WFC: No External Entity References, see prod. 41]
   [WFC: No < in Attribute Values, see prod. 41]

-- d.k.
