The first bullet item in section 5.2 Character Escaping reads

"Where an element contains two lines are separated by CR-NL (#xD, #xA), the
information set contains a single NL (#xA) character information item."

In this sentence, "are" should be removed or changed to "that are".

This still leaves a difficulty that perhaps warrants rewriting the
sentence, namely the (surely unintended) implication that the two lines as
well as the CR and NL that separate them are represented in the information
set by a single NL character information item.  The following replacement
text avoids this implication.

"Where an element contains the consecutive characters CR-NL (#xD, #xA)
separating two lines, the information set contains a single NL (#xA)
character information item."
