The equivalent character classes for two of the multi-character
escapes in CR-xmlschema-2-20001024 use a numeric character references
that is not supported by the CR's regular expression syntax.  The
character classes in the CR are '[#x20\t\n\r]' and

The CR states that in a regular expression a normal character can be
represented by itself or by a character reference, with a link to the
character reference definition in XML 1.0 2ed.

Either the character references in the equivalent character classes
should be correct character references or the regular expression
syntax should be expanded to include character references of the form
used in the equivalent character classes.
