Thank you Rick & Richard. I have corrected that. The new text reads:

  The value of the href attribute is a [Legacy Extended IRI] (LEIRI).
  Processing a relative identifier against a base is handled
  straightforwardly; the algorithms of [RFC 3986] can be applied
  directly, treating the characters additionally allowed in LEIRIs in
  the same way that unreserved characters are in URI references.

Rick, please let us know if that resolves your concerns.

                                        Be seeing you,
