Hello Paul, Ronald,

I just had a quick look at your new documents.
It seems that one very important section from the previous version,
namely "4.1 Character Escaping"
has fallen between the cracks. This section is extremely important
for I18N. If I have missed it, please tell me where to find it.

If it has been lost inadvertedly, it may be worth considering to
asap issue an updated version of http://www.w3.org/TR/xptr-framework/,
where I think it can be easily integrated, probably as Section 3.2
(moving the current 3.2,... up), to make sure that the spec can
be reviewed in its entirety. Some small editorial changes
(such as IURI -> IRI) may be needed but could be deferred to the
next stage.

I very much hope this section has not been removed on purpose.

Regards,    Martin.
