technique 3.2.A

Based on Michael's suggestion, I modified technique 3.2 to read:

Technique 3.2.A [priority 2] Check document for public text identifier
Discussion Status:
awaiting discussion
The document must contain a valid HTML or XHTML public text identifier if 
it is an HTML or XHTML document.  If a text identifier is not the first 
line of the document, refuse to evaluate the document.
A <a href="">list of public text 
identifiers</a> is available from the W3C.
The document is an HTML document if there is an HTML element near the start 
of the document and there is an HTML end element as the last non-whitespace 
text in the document.
Example Language:
Missing language identifier for this document.
Repair Technique:
Prompt the user for a public text identifier.
