Hello Richard,

My sincere apologies for getting back to you so long after your response
- intensive travelling in the interim.
Thank you for coming back on C104 and with a change too.
The reworded text is great and clarified the issue.

Thanks,
Yin Leng

Hello Yin-Leng,

Thankyou for coming back to us on the point below.  We have revisited
the issue and made some further changes to the document based on your
remarks.   We have added the following explanation to the Last Call
Comment Table: 

=======
Decision: Accepted. We understand the concern. 

Action: Text has been reworded "There is also a need, often satisfied by
the same or similar mechanisms, to express characters not directly
representable in the character encoding chosen for a particular document
or program (an instance of the markup or programming language)."
========

Please let us know if this resolves your issue.

Best regards,
Richard.
