We have not seen the IPA Handbook, so cannot verify, but the examples in the spec use an apostrophe for primary word stressand a colon for vowel lengthening (eg. 5.1 example), whereas there are ipa characters for this, ˈ and ː.

eg. Newton is transcribed 'nju:tən rather than ˈnjuːtən

Section 2 does not mention alternate forms. Are the examples correct?
