A number of editorial comments:

1. 'space character' is not defined
2. 'URI character' is not defined
3. It's not clear to me whether the algorithms in sections 2 and 3 are

result of the following Python expression in an HTML5 document as the
value of an href attribute, what does this document say should happen?


Or (and this would presumably only be different if you adopt my LEIRI
