An editorial concern:  step 3 in section 3 says [1]:

        * If encoding is UTF-16, then change it to UTF-8.

I think this reads two ways:

        1. Go and convert the Web address
           string to UTF-8, then proceed
        2. Don't touch the string, but for
           purposes of the remaining steps,
           assume that "encoding" is
           set to UTF-8.

Whichever it is, I recommend that it be stated more clearly.  Thank you.

[IRIEverywhere-27 ISSUE-27]

I worked with MSM to produce a draft; it's attached
to a message to public-html:

'Web addresses in HTML 5' for review (ISSUE-56 urls-webarch) (from
connolly@w3.org on 2009-03-18)

This is progress on...
ACTION-188 Investigate the URL/IRI/Larry Masinter possible resolution of
the URL/HTML5 issue.

I expect to have a revised draft later this week.
