Preface: I'm a minimalist. All these nit editing bugs in COMPLETELY
REDUNDANT parts of the HTML document are getting me down.
At least someone else is finding them for you. Cheer up! :-)
In message <[log in to unmask]>, John C. Mallery writes
>on page 46, ^ is not listed. Should this be the character "^" ?
Yes, per ISO-646-IRV, character 94 is '^'.
Do you happen to have the correct description string for it?
If we just cited that
as a normative reference, we wouldn't have to maintain this stuff.
But we do...
Yup, if people are implementing out of the spec you do.
>on page 48, ã and ä have the same description string.

Again, this comes straing from ISO8559-1. Well.. the description
strings come from
"ISO 8879-1986//ENTITIES Added Latin 1//EN"
But my copy at
<!ENTITY atilde CDATA "ã" -- small a, tilde -->
<!ENTITY auml CDATA "ä" -- small a, dieresis or umlaut mark -->
so page 48 is wrong, I guess.
229 is wrong as well. It should be:
((229 "aring") "Small a, ring")
Keyboard macros make the spec into code pretty fast.
I hope the case sensitivity is right (boy do I hate case sensitivity).
