Section 7 says:

  Polyglot markup surrounds attribute values by either single quotation marks 
  or by double quotation marks. 

Those two occurrences of "by" need to be "with" (values can be surrounded
by quotation marks, or markup can surround value with quotation marks, but
markup can't surround them by quotation marks; that doesn't make sense
grammatically (mixing passive and active voice, or something like that)).
