[whatwg] Usage "one of more" v. "one or more" (was: Re: Editorial for application/x-www-form-urlencoded encoding algorithm)

This section also contains "one of more characters" and should be "one  
or more characters."

This occurs in 2.4.3.1, 2.4.3.2, and 4.10.15.3[.6] in http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/

"One of more resources" occurs in 5.8.2 and should similarly be "One  
or more..."

Thanks,
