RFC 1464, "Using the Domain Name System To Store Arbitrary String Attributes", May 1993

Source of RFC: Legacy

Errata ID: 5193
Status: Verified
Type: Technical

Reported By: Victor Toni

Section 2. says:

string2      `abc`           string2=``abc``         "string2=``abc``"

It should say:

string2      `abc`           string2=`abc`         "string2=`abc`"

Notes:

Quote:
--------------------------------------------
Attribute Values

All printable ASCII characters are permitted in the attribute value.
No characters need to be quoted with a "`". In other words, the
first unquoted equals sign in the TXT record is the name/value
delimiter. All subsequent characters are part of the value.

Once again, note that in most implementations the backslash character
is an active quoting character (and must, itself, be quoted).

--------------------------------------------

"All subsequent characters are part of the value." would indicate that the part of the string after the "=" character could be copied as one.
The accent grave shoud not be escaped within the value.

Section 2. says:

   a=a          true            a`=a=true               "a`=a=true"
   a\=a false           a\`=a=false             "a\\`=a=false"

It should say:

   a=a          true            a`=a=true               "a`=a=true"
   a\=a         false           a\`=a=false             "a\\`=a=false"

Notes:

The second line needs an adjustment so that it aligns with the other lines.
