http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/ used to show a single document, but
you'll find that it now shows just the titlepage stuff, Status
section, and TOC.

Follow a link to some part of the doc from the TOC and it will
take you to a page that has just the contents of the major section
for that part -- along with some nav stuff at the top that lets you
navigate to the previous/next pages and back to the TOC.  So to
reference particular sections in the draft, you can now do, e.g.:


This is all thanks to a spec-splitter script that Philip Taylor
wrote. There's been a split version at the whatwg.org site for a
long time, generated using the same script from Philip; this just
makes it available at dev.w3.org also.

One more thing that's new with the dev.w3.org version is that each
page now has "This is revision 1.NNNN.", where the "1.NNNN" part
is the current dev.w3.org CVS revision of the master single-page
file (which the split pages are generated from). In the split
pages, it's shown just below the previous/TOC/next stuff.

So if you're reading or commenting on the spec and for some reason
want to note exactly what revision of the draft you're looking at,
that's the number to use.
