Feedback by Addison Phillips from W3C I18N group:

I18N comment:

In the example of a label, it is called out that CSS escapes are used in the CSS. Using some non-ASCII values in an example would also be helpful. Note that there is a non-ASCII character in one of the example lines, just not references in the escaping example.
Comment 1 Silvia Pfeiffer 2015-06-08 12:03:19 UTC
I actually don't quite follow what is requested here.

Addison, is it that you would like to see a note added to the example before the ::cue() part which says "(notice the use of non-ASCII characters in the second cue)" ?
Comment 2 Addison Phillips 2015-07-27 01:03:08 UTC
Indeed, the second example of a cue has a non-ASCII character in it (the trademark symbol), but that isn't really what we mean. 

This comment is about escapes in the CSS portion. You do show escaping the number 1 as \31. Our recommendation is to show non-ASCII characters being matched, not just an ASCII digit. This is a minor comment.
Comment 3 Richard Ishida 2015-07-27 18:56:59 UTC
one way to do that might be to replace the first example with a translation of the transcript credit cue. For example, in French this might be:

crédit de transcription
00:04.000 --> 00:05.000
Transcrit par Celestials™

note the é

(someone should check that this is a reasonable translation)
