[Serial] Normalization and References

Dear XSL Working Group,
Dear XML Query Working Group,

  In Section 4 item 2 "Character expansion" it is not clear in which
order these are to be processed, the prose states the list is "in
priority order" but the list is unordered. If the list is meant to be in
an order please use an ordered list in the markup. Specifically, please
clarify whether URI escaping is affected by the normalization-form
parameter and further please add a note in how far escape-uri-attributes
is consistent with the latest IRI Internet Draft. I further note that
the reference for the normalization forms is


which is quite outdated and the latest version does no longer cover this
subject. I also note that the reference [Unicode Normalization] appears
in the References list but is not actually used in the document. It
would seem you want to reference UAX 15 rather than charmod for the nor-
mative definition of the normalization forms. Please review the
references section for other outdated and/or unused references and
change the section to comply with the recommendations for references
sections outlined in <http://www.w3.org/2001/06/manual/>.
http://esw.w3.org/topic/SiteTools lists several tools that might help
here, for example <http://www.w3.org/2004/07/references-checker-ui>.
