Subject: Editorial comments on HTML 2.0 spec
X-Listprocessor-Version: 6.0c -- ListProcessor by Anastasios Kotsikonas
X-Comment: HTML Working Group (Private)

These comments are based on the July 1994 postscript version
of the spec:

Page 2-6, Section -- Working With Structured Text: Comments

	After the comment delimiter, all text up to the next
	occurrence of -- is ignored.
    I believe this should be "-->".

Page 3-3, Section -- Meta: Examples

	If the document contains:

	   <expires http-equiv="Expires">...</expires>
    I never saw an EXPIRE element in the DTD.  Shouldn't it be

	   <meta http-equiv="Expires" content="...">

Page 4-1, Section -- Obsolete HTML Features: comment

	A comment element used for bracketing off unneeded text and
	comments has been introduced in some browsers but will be
	replaced by the SGML command feature
    Should be "comment".
