Section Definitions says:

               Character   ASCII & Unicode Value (decimal)

                 [...]       [...]

                  '           96

It should say:

               Character   ASCII & Unicode Value (decimal)

                 [...]       [...]

                  `           96

Notes:

The wrong character is used in the left column: code point 96 corresponds to "Grave Accent", not "Apostrophe".

      Content-Disposition: inline

      --foo
      Content-type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii

      Hi Mom
      --foo

      Content-transfer-encoding: base64

      Jjo=

It should say:

      Content-type: multipart/mixed; boundary=foo
      Content-Disposition: inline

      --foo
      Content-type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii

      Hi Mom
      --foo
      Content-type: text/plain; charset=UTF-7
      Content-transfer-encoding: base64

      Jjo=
      --foo
      Content-type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii

      !
      --foo--

Notes:

The charset name for this RFC is UTF-7, not UNICODE-2-0.
--VERIFIER NOTES--

This is an example that's specifically introduced with, "As an alternative to use of UTF-7," and quite intentionally uses a charset other than UTF-7.
