RFC2978, "IANA Charset Registration Procedures", October 2000

Source of RFC: Legacy

Errata ID: 357

Status: Verified
Type: Technical

Reported By: Ned Freed
Date Reported: 2003-02-09
Report Text:

(1) All references in RFC 2978 to RFC 2184 should be replaced by RFC
    2231.  RFC 2231 obsoleted RFC 2184 before RFC 2978 was published.

(2) The fact that vertical bar and backslash characters are now
    excluded from charset names was a change from RFC 2278 that should
    have been noted in section 7.

Section 2.3 says:

mime-charset-chars = ALPHA / DIGIT /
            "!" / "#" / "$" / "%" / "&" /
            "'" / "+" / "-" / "^" / "_" /
            "`" / "{" / "}" / "~"
    

It should say:

mime-charset-chars = ALPHA / DIGIT /
            "!" / "#" / "$" / "%" / "&" /
            "+" / "-" / "^" / "_" / "`" /
            "{" / "}" / "~"

Notes:

RFC 2231 uses single quotes as delimiters around charset names. As such, single quote should have been excluded from the list of legal characters that can appear in a charset name.
