[DISC] Why quote colon within a quoted value?
The following line in the grammar
<string-char> := <simple-char> | <space> | '\"' | '\\' | '\:'
suggests to me one must place a backquote in front of colons that
appear within a quoted value. This means that
"aoeu:oeu", ":", and "bbb:" are illegal values and must be written as
"aoeu\:oeu", "\:", and "bbb\:".
Perhaps the intention was to write:
<string-char> := <simple-char> | <space> | '\"' | '\\' | ':'
If not, what's the point of requiring the extra quoting?
