Hello Steven,

Many thanks for your comment. We have some difficulties
understanding the example; there may be some syntax problems.

I'm not copying the HTML WG, as I think this is an editorial
matter, but if you think it is helpful, please add them to the cc.

I think you mean that "&#x0151;&amp;#x0151;" should look like
"o&#x0151;" with a double acute on the o, didn't you?
