Hello Phil, all,

Thanks, the document looks great and hope many will read it and take it to

One thing I miss is the advice to use significant figures in numerical
data. It is an easy way to make the data match their uncertainty, and in
many cases it helps to compact data too. Numerical data with the wrong
number of significant digits is a very common problem in geographical data
(e.g. geographic coordinates with nanometre precision).

Should I post a personal comment about this to public-dwbp-comments@w3.org?
Or do want to comment on significant figures as a group?
