Hi Doug,

I'd say CVS patches are much more appropriate for this sort of
feedback (typos, whitespace and markup issues) than providing a long
message full of snippets (as I recall doing during the SVG 1.2 Tiny
LC). It would be great this was formally made a way to provide
feedback, specially when no relevant text changes are involved; I do
agree that, whenever significant prose changes are involved, providing
text snippets is easier to both evaluate and discuss. :-)

Yes, of course the editor has a final word on the subject.

If you (or the editor, naturally) prefer that I attach the changed
HTML files (I'm not sure if that's what you meant in the first place),
of course I'm happy with it too: it just gets a little harder to tell
the differences (downloading + performing a diff vs. directly taking a
look at the patch), but the procedures are more or less equivalent.
