Henri,

To answer you question and to add to what Frank said, there is no semantic
difference. The extension marker is just a syntactic mechanism for augmenting
an ASN.1 tree.

                Hi everyone,

                I have a pretty basic/specific question about ASN.1 coding:
                what's the semantic difference if a particular information
element is located above/below the "three dots"-line in an ASN.1 structure?
