Description Jens O. Meiert 2009-04-03 08:15:52 UTC
(Apologies for not searching W3C Bugzilla for duplicates.)

The spec currently (as of April 3) contains several typos. Since they should be easy to find and to correct I’m just going to list what I found so far:

* altogther
* approprate
* attribue
* attrbutes
* constaints
* coordindate
* elemnt
* elment
* follwed
* fouth
* indicies
* knowns
* occurance/occurances
* oherwise
* outlinee
* pronunciations
* referer
* sebsteps
* snipet
* subtring
* stirng
* styleesheet
* targetting
* timezone*
* teh
* victom

* Not completely sure, but dictionaries seem to prefer “time zone”
Comment 1 Jens O. Meiert 2009-04-04 08:07:09 UTC
Another typo report: <>.
Comment 2 Ian 'Hixie' Hickson 2009-04-18 06:18:48 UTC
> * outlinee

That one is intentional.

> * pronunciations

Not sure what the problem with that one is.

> * referer

Couldn't find this one in the spec. (Note that the HTTP "Referer" header is de-facto misspelt.)

Others fixed.
