OK, so I unscrambled the doctest/js stuff, which is very nice, and 
answered my own question about the 2nd link.  I do think it would be 
helpful for you to put at least some informal frontmatter on the main 
document.  Thank you.

The first of those document seems to provide some analysis, but it states 
no author, date, etc.  Is it something you wrote for consideration of the 
community?  Is it a link into a section of some larger work that does have 

such attribution?  Is the second link, which is to an active test case, 
conceptually a section of the first document (which seems to be hinted at 
by your reference to successive elaboration) or some existing working 
group test case?  Thanks.

Larry, Henry, John,

I made some progress on ACTION-265

"Work with Larry, Henry to frame technical issues relating to the
vairous overlapping specs. about URIs, IRIs and encoding on the wire"

In particular...

  http://www.w3.org/html/wg/href/elab.html
  http://www.w3.org/html/wg/href/elab10.html

This is a successive elaboration of the issues with
issues captured as test cases.

It's what I was talking about when I wrote...

(the best way to slow down is to make test cases. here's hoping I find
time)

The issues covered are

 Space in Path
 Colon in path
 Non-ASCII characters in path
 Non-ASCII characters in path and query/search

Larry, I showed you an earlier draft and you weren't too
excited. I still find this is the way my brain needs
to capture issues.

John, could you take a look at see if I'm making sense, at least?

I gather Henry is out this week...
