However, a general request to have transliterations for all non-ascii 
characters, that is for ltru right?

That's what I want to do--submit a new request to modify an existing record!

(I should not have used the words resubmit--my mistake; sorry.)

Since I have already have completed a request form for 1694acad, and since 
there is some inconsistency in the way my original Comments field was
encoded, I am submitting my request to modify that comments field -- for the 
existing record for 1694acad.

Hope that is o.k.??

(As far as the comments change goes:
I am not sure whether I want to have the escape sequence é replace the 
e in 4eme;
--and, of course if the escape sequence should replace the e, a 
transliteration would be needed for this too;
that's what I did in the revision--for now,
but I'm open to leaving it as is, without the escape sequence in 4eme at 

In a minute I will send the request and open the discussion on how to best 
modify my comments field.

Again, hope that is o.k.

(Should we opt to have the transliterations,
I'll be more than happy to attempt the comments fields for all the entries 
with escape sequences;
where I think I have listed all entries with escape sequences;
let me know if you want me to complete the requests for modification thx 
I'm a fast cutter and paster.  It will take me less than half an hour 
probably to get all together.)
