5.3 Uniqueness of Attributes

"no tag may contain two attributes"

Is "element" intended instead of tag?  

All right, this is picky.  I'm just now reading the spec fully, is all.

Another question.  Default namespaces do not apply directly to attributes
according to the specification.  So if I have:

<html xmlns="">
<body bgcolor="#ffffff">

then body is part of the namespace, but
its attribute bgcolor is not?  (bgcolor belongs to no namespace)
