           Summary: Inconsistency in algorithm descriptions for parsing
                    integers
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: trivial
          Priority: P5
         Component: HTML5 spec bugs

In the rules for parsing non-negative integers and the rules for parsing
integers, there is some inconsistency in the way the two algorithms are
written.

Step 9.4 in the first is written as:
"If position is not past the end of input, return to the top of the step
labeled
 loop in the overall algorithm..."

In the latter algorithm, it's written as:
"If position is not past the end of input, return to the top of step 9 in the
 overall algorithm"

Please write these two algorithms using consistent language.
