as a suggestion for how to submit review comments on the spec, on the mailing list, in a low-friction fashion, rather than marking it up in esoteric formats requiring special tools to read & reply (e.g., PDF), here's a relatively easy way to render the spec to "quoted plain text" which can then be pasted into an email msg, and comments inserted inline...

> lynx -crawl -dump https://w3c.github.io/webauthn/ | sed 's/^/> /' > webauthn.txt

Then paste the contents of webauthn.txt into a mail msg, hack it up, and send it to the list.

If you just want to easily test it out, try..

> lynx -crawl -dump https://w3c.github.io/webauthn/ | sed 's/^/> /' | less

Note that you can also process a locally-cached spec copy (e.g., if you have a local clone of https://github.com/w3c/webauthn/ ...

> cd webauthn
> gmake force   // assumes you have bikeshed installed
> lynx -crawl -dump ./index.html | sed 's/^/> /' | less

[ of course, YMMV in that you may need to first install lynx or an equivalent tool...]
