Oh and a *very minor* nit:

<acronym title="Application Programming Interface"><span lang="en" 
dir="ltr" xml:lang="en">API</span></acronym>

it would be better to put the lang and dir elements on the acronym 
element tag, to capture the title attribute text too (ie. you don't need 
the span).

No big deal.
