Just two very minor corrections to note:

          that has no corresponding definition

In line 3245 please note that ISO 8601 no longer states the Year as 'CCYY',
previously implying 'CC' as 'Century'. The years from 2001 to 2099
inclusive, have a CC of '20' whilst in common parlance they are really all
21st Century dates. ISO8601:1988 has been replaced (on 2000-12-21) by the
new ISO8601:2000 standard, which avoids this problem by now using 'YYYY' for
the Year Information. This should now read:

> 3245    YYYYMMDDThhmmss.sssZ.

>  435    'definiton'

This should be  'definition'.

Should Section 11, 'References', list this as well?:

ISO8601:2000  Data Elements and Interchange Formats - Information
Interchange - Representation of Dates and Times (2nd Edition)  2000-12-21,
International Organisation for Standardisation, Geneva.

Controversial!: How about the BPSS Document Date being '2001 April 21'
rather than '21 April 2001', thereby following the same element order as in
ISO8601. Within the ISO8601 standard long-hand dates are already written in
that style in many places.
