I have filed the following additional spec bugs:

* bug 9358: Explanation of content model requirements could be improved
* bug 9359: hspace and vspace attributes should be listed in obsolete  
section
* bug 9360: <iframe allowTransparency> should be mentioned in the  
obsolete section
* bug 9361: script element should be allowed essentially anywhere

I linked all of the above on the wiki page, in addition to these two  
bugs filed by others that seemed related:

* bug 7468: make <table border="1" cellpadding="10" cellspacing="0">  
conforming
* bug 9355: Obsolete presentational markup should be conforming

The bugs are all listed here:
http://www.w3.org/html/wg/wiki/HTML5_Authoring_Conformance_Study#Bugs_Filed_Against_Spec

I also filed the following validator bug:

* "Error incorrectly reported for iframe with 0 width and height" <http://bugzilla.validator.nu/show_bug.cgi?id=728

If anyone else wants to go over the data and see if there are more  
bugs to file, I encourage you to do so, and to link any bugs you file  
on the wiki page. The same goes for any other authoring conformance  
bugs of a similar nature. Also, please feel free to comment in any of  
the bugs cited above.

Regards,
Maciej
