Currently, the note in 5.1 PointerEvent Interface > pointerType definition
reads:

NOTE
See the examples in the appendix for sample code.

the link jumps to earlier in the document (3. Examples). So, not really an
appendix (which is generally at the end, and called that). The note is also a
bit wishy-washy...I'm guessing we want to draw attention to example 2 which
shows how pointerType can be used to determine what kind of input we're dealing
with. Suggest changing to just:

NOTE
See example 2 for a basic demonstration of how the <code>pointerType</code> can
be used. Also note that developers should include some form of default handling
to cover user agents that may have implemented their own custom
<code>pointerType</code> values and for situations where
<code>pointerType</code> is simply an empty string.
