However, I don't see that this has anything to do with testing of Turtle, and wonder why those files don't use the serialization format from the existing N-Triples grammar (using the \u escaped form). Moreover, even when/if a new N-Triples document is published, I don't believe it's wise to base the new Turtle test suite on the also new N-Triples grammar. The N-Triples files in the Turtle test suite should conform to the existing grammar.

The traditional N-Triples representation was restored on 4 March. I left that as the resolution, but in the interested of completeness, I should ask if this resolution addressed your comment. If so, please reply with the subject prefixed by "[RESOLVED]".
