Hello public-iri,

In section 3.1 of RFC 3987, it says

 > Systems accepting IRIs MAY also deal with the printable characters in
 > US-ASCII that are not allowed in URIs, namely "<", ">", '"', space,
 > "{", "}", "|", "\", "^", and "`", in step 2 above. If these characters
 > are found but are not converted, then the conversion SHOULD fail.
 > Please note that the number sign ("#"), the percent sign ("%"), and
 > the square bracket characters ("[", "]") are not part of the above
 > list and MUST NOT be converted. Protocols and formats that have used
 > earlier definitions of IRIs including these characters

In the third sentence, 'these characters' is ambiguous. i read it as
referring to the most recently mentioned list - # % [ ] - but in fact (I
confirmed with Martin) it refers to the first list. Please reword to
make this unambiguous.
