My assertion is that the steps I have provided cover these exact same 
corner cases and parsing peculiarities, and I have running code and 
published test results to back up my assertion.  Can you identify a 
single corner case that isn't covered (other than the encoding changes 
that I already have noted as todos in the document)?
