Re: [Scheme-reports] inconsistent use of \| escape

Section 6.7 "Strings" lists '\|' as an escape sequence valid in strings.
However, 7.1.1 "Lexical structure" does *not* show '\|' as valid syntax

OTOH <symbol element> explicitly lists '\|'.

I assume the formal syntax is correct, and 6.7 needs some editorial

Yes, the formal syntax is correct.  There's no reason
to use \| in a string since | by itself is perfectly valid.
