Section 2.1.1 says:

   An IPv6 address is a 128-bit quantity that is written as eight
   hexadecimal numbers, each in the range 0 through ffff, separated by a
   semicolon (":"); 2001:0:200:3:0:0:0:1 is an example of an IPv6
   address.  IPv6 addresses frequently have adjacent fields whose value
   is 0.  One such group of 0 fields may be abbreviated by two
   semicolons ("::"). 

It should say:

   An IPv6 address is a 128-bit quantity that is written as eight 
   hexadecimal numbers, each in the range 0 through ffff, separated by a 
   colon (":"); 2001:0:200:3:0:0:0:1 is an example of an IPv6 address.
   IPv6 addresses frequently have adjacent fields whose value is 0.  One
   such group of 0 fields may be abbreviated by two colons ("::").

Notes:

"semicolon" should be "colon"
Added reference to RFC4291.
Verifier: Forward reference to RFC4291 is inappropriate.
