In response to your email to the XML 1.1 CR recorded at
the XML Core WG generated, discussed, and resolved the follow issue:

Issue Tobin-03:
double escaping of control characters if they appear in internal entities

Summary resolution: accepted

The WG had CONSENSUS to change things so that such double escaping is no longer
required.  Our plan is as follows:

(a) change Char to include the (C0 and C1) controls

(b) add a new production RestrictedChar listing the controls that
    have to be escaped:

  RestrictedChar ::= #x1 - #x8 | #x9 | #xB - #xC | #xE - #x1F |
                     #x7F - #x84 | #x86 - #xBF

(c) change extParsedEnt from

  extParsedEnt ::= TextDecl? Content


  extParsedEnt ::= (TextDecl? Content) - (Char* RestrictedChar Char*)


Please let us know whether you accept our resolution of our comment,
or wish to have an objection formally recorded.  If we do not hear
from you within 10 days we will assume that you accept our response
(though we would prefer to hear from you in any case if practical).

Thank you for your interest in the XML 1.1.

Paul Grosso
