Section 2.2 says:

   dqstring    =  <"> *(dqtext/quoted-pair) <">
   dqtext      =  <any CHAR except <">, "\", and CTLs>
   sqstring    =  <'> *(dqtext/quoted-pair) <'>
   sqtext      =  <any CHAR except <'>, "\", and CTLs>
   quoted-pair =  "\" CHAR

It should say:

   dqstring    =  <"> *(dqtext/quoted-pair) <">
   dqtext      =  <any CHAR except <">, "\", and CTLs>
   sqstring    =  <'> *(sqtext/quoted-pair) <'>
   sqtext      =  <any CHAR except <'>, "\", and CTLs>
   quoted-pair =  "\" CHAR

Notes:

As it stands, the original specification would allow an sqstring of 'Bob's Garage' to be valid when that is not intended. [Approver Note: this appears to be a copy-and-paste error.]
