Comment:
Anything else:  This part of the spec is problematic, for example, a query
string variable &lang_id=1 in as part of an attribute of say an img tag, will
get converted into an character token when it shouldn't be.  Why is the set of
characters a-z, A-Z, 0-9?  This poses a unique problem for any entities that
aren't closed properly.
