Editorial: I've broken the section up by using <h4>s. There are now
two sub sections:

* Terminology Used in Processing Algorithm
* Processing Algorithm

The Processing Algorithm section now begins with, "The algorithm to
process a configuration document is as follows: "

Editorial: right, now reads "If the document is not namespace
well-formed [XML]..."

Editorial: I've removed, "If any of the following attributes are in
error or invalid..". I instead dealt with the attribute errors in
place where they happen. This makes it consistent with the rest of the
algorithm and hopefully gets rid of the confusion.

> "If any other attribute, in any XML namespace, apart from xml:lang, is used, then the attribute is in error and the user agent must ignore it." Is this not again stating what has already been stated? Duplicating requirements makes the specification very hard to read.

Editorial: Agreed. This is no longer duplicated as the first assertion
has been removed.
