In sas-r03d.pdf sub-clause 6.8.2 there is a note that reads:

"Editor's Note 6: fill in this section. Define better what an invalid dword 
means."

In the definitions section invalid dword is defined as follows:

"3.1.61 invalid dword: A dword with an illegal character, with a control 
character in other than the first character position, with a control 
character other than K28.5 or K28.3 in the first character position, or with 
a running disparity error."

Does this definition apply to the use of the term "invalid dword" in the 
SP_DWS state machine description or does it only include dwords which have 
control character in other than the first character position?

Please clarify.

thanks,
\Sriram\
