Dear Ishida,

Thanks for your comment! We agree that is important to mention the choice
of a Unicode encoding. However, we believe that a new BP is not necessary.

Other possible solution could be to include the following text at the end
of the paragraph "A general Best Practice to publish Data on the Web is to
use standards..."  of Section 1:

"Other important general Best Practice concerns the use of Unicode
encoding. It is fundamental to always choose a Unicode encoding when
publishing data on the Web."

Please, let us know if you agree with this. If not, could you please give
us another suggestion?

Feel free to make changes on our proposal.
