   I've been doing some more work on the HTML 5 Reference lately.

The most recent changes include the addition of the syntax section, 
which is beginnging to describe the syntax of HTML and XHTML for authors.


Some of this was merged in from a much older draft, which had been 
removed when the whole document was restructured.  But some of it is 
new, such as the section describing how to create and maintain polyglot 
documents.  That is, documents that can be both HTML and XHTML.


I realise the term polyglot document may not be the most author friendly 
term to use.  But it's all I've found so far.  If anyone has any better 
suggestions, I'd be really happy to hear them.  What I need is a way to 
refer to them, so that they can be easily distinguished from documents 
that use HTML only syntax (like omitted tags, unquoted attributes, ec.) 
or XHTML only syntax.

Additionally, as I mentioned in a previous email in another thread, I've 
also added the index of elements.


Feedback would be very much appreciated.
