Location in reviewed document:

We have not seen the IPA Handbook, so cannot verify, but the examples in
the spec use an apostrophe for primary word stressand a colon for vowel
lengthening (eg. 5.1 example), whereas there are ipa characters for
this, K and K.

eg. Newton is transcribed 'nju:tIn rather than KnjuKtIn

Section 2 does not mention alternate forms. Are the examples correct?
