Thank you for the correction. We agree that character references are not
normalized, and have corrected the specification by deleting the
sentence

  Thus, each newline in SVG will be represented by the single character
  #xA, no matter what representation for newlines might have been used
  in the original resource.

Please let us know within two week if this does not satisfy your
comment.
