Section 5.1.1 says:
Value: Is the <character-string> encoding of the value field as specified in [RFC1035], Section 5.1.
It should say:
Value: The value field, expressed as a contiguous set of characters without interior spaces, or as a quoted string. See the the <character-string> format specified in [RFC1035], Section 5.1, but note that the value field contains no length byte and is not limited to 255 characters.
<character-string> is defined in RFC 1035 as being limited to 255 characters
preceded by a length byte. Saying the field is encoded as a <character-string>
creates ambiguity as to whether the value field is intended to be size-limited.
RFC author agreed that it was okay to make this more explicit with the proposed text.
