Under Background 
http://www.w3.org/International/questions/qa-choosing-encodings-new#background:
“There are many character encodings to choose from.”

Then, under Answer / Choosing an encoding:
“Choose UTF-8 for all content.”

IMHO, saying “many character encodings to choose from” gives the wrong 
impression to the reader that they would have a choise. Actually, they 
don’t; they should use UTF-8.

Suggestion: replace “There are many character encodings to choose from.”
with “There are different character encodings.”

Remove del markup.

Link titles should speak for themselves; “says” does not.

Make “The HTML5 specification” or “The HTML5 specification says” the 
link title.

Same here. Use “The HTML5 specification (calls out)” or even better “a 
number of encodings that you should avoid” as link title.


Also, once you link to the HTML5 spec version from 2012-12-17, once to 
the HTML 5.1 Nightly editor’s draft?

Cheers,
Gunnar
