These changes look good, with two minor exceptions:


# When a=1, or a=-1, the number may be omitted from the rule. 

This makes it sound like when a=-1, the "-1" can be omitted, whereas
really only the "1" can be omitted, and the "-" is still required.
It should also perhaps be clear than the optional "+" sign before a
positive 1 need not be omitted even if the number is, so that
:nth-child(+n+6) is valid.

(I sort of raised this before in
although I missed the issue about the "+n" case.)


The document uses the term "expanded element name" without defining
it.  It probably ought to define it somewhere, perhaps by reference
to the term "expanded name" in http://www.w3.org/TR/xml-names/ .
