Section Header says:


It should say:

Updates: 791


RFC 2474 obsoletes RFC 1349. However, RFC 1349 updates RFC 791, by changing the definition of the Type of Service octet. RFC 2474 changes it again. Therefore, 2474 should also be marked as updating 791.

This does lead to occasional confusion, since the Type of Service octet is named as the Differentiated Services Field by RFC 2474.
