Hi Evan,

Thank you very much for the report.  We have corrected the N-Triples and 
N-Quads documents to be the same as Turtle and in the same style.

Rule 6:
https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/rdf/raw-file/default/rdf-turtle/n-triples.html

Rule 7:
https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/rdf/raw-file/default/nquads/index.html

Could you please respond to public-rdf-comments@w3.org to confirm that 
your comment has been dealt with satisfactorily?
