           Summary: Include a history section. Say that this spec replaces

I note that some part of the spec seems to take XHTML 1.0 Appendix C as a
starting point. For example, the advice in Appendix C to avoid multiple space
characteres inside attributes – seems to have been lifted out of Appendix C
directly by you.  There does, however, not seemsto be not basis for that

So, I suggest that just like there is a document which documetns the
differences betwen HTML4 and HTML5, there should be a section of the polyglot
spec which documents the history of the polyglot spect, starting with Appendix
C and possible some other documents.

I would like to propose a text for this, unless you object. Though, if you
agree, feel free to start.

The history part should have two parts: 1) Document the roots of the Polyglot
spec - link it back to Appendix C. 2) Describe some difference betwen Appendix
C and the polyglot spec.
