Section 5 says:

   Using escaping:
   <sourcecode>
      allowed-chars = "." | "," | "&amp;" | "&lt;" | "&gt;" | "|"
   </sourcecode>

It should say:

   Using escaping:
   <sourcecode>
      allowed-chars = "." | "," | "&amp;" | "&lt;" | ">" | "|"
   </sourcecode>

Notes:

The example suggests that ">" needs to be escaped in absence of CDATA. This is not correct. This is a problem, as the intent of this section is to actually describe escaping *precisely*.
