Hi Dave!

A few minor things remain. Please see below!

technical/minor: There is still the redundant variable "?dt" after "Forall" in all translations. While probably technically harmless, this should be removed to avoid confusion.

editorial/trivial: The name of the translation should then better also reflect the name of the datatype; currently it is still "(* dt-type1-text *)" instead of something like "(* dt-type1-plainliteral *)".

Now it turned into a technical issue. ;-) You seem to have introduced a typo in (* prp-adp *), near "Forall": ">v" instead of "?v".

Cheers,
Michael
