I would like to show you an error in RFC 3261. I've discussed in
SIP-implementors mailing list too.

in RFC 3261 page 44 par there is an example of URI (contact URI)
with uri headers:


I've noticed that URI header "Call-Info" has a value with characters not
allowed in uri headers.

The BNF says that an header value must contain characters in   
hnv-unreserved or unreserved or escaped but '<' and '>' are not in that set.

The right example should be the following:

It should say:

[not submitted]
