1 General Support for XML 1.1

We believe that support for XML 1.1. is no longer necessary, once XML 1.0 5th edition is approved. We therefore suggest that you reference XML 1.0 5th edition and drop the reference to XML 1.1.

2 References and G.1 Reference to Unicode Database

We suggest that you have a non-static reference to the Unicode database, and that you make the Note starting with "[Unicode Database] is subject to future revision" to normative text.

3 D.2.1 Terminology: Timezone vs. zone offset

We suggest that you make clearer that what you call timezone information is actually zone offset information. You should add a note including a reference to http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/NOTE-timezone-20051013/, which makes the difference clear.

4 References References update

Please update the reference to http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/WD-charmod-20040225, so that it refers to the Recommendation of the Character Model, and delete the reference to IETF INTERNET-DRAFT: IRIs.

5 3.12 Applicability of <alternative> element to xml:lang

The I18N Core Working Group has discussed this topic again and decided to ask you again for considering a technical solution for the issue. Looking into the discussion of http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=5003 , we are aware of the problems which arise, but think that xml:lang is important enough to achieve a solution.
