RFC 1345, "Character Mnemonics and Character Sets", June 1992

Source of RFC: 822ext (app)

Errata ID: 4272
Status: Held for Document Update
Type: Technical
Publication Format(s) : TEXT

Section 5 says:

&charset ISO_8859-1:1987
NS !I Ct Pd Cu Ye BB SE ': Co -a << NO -- Rg '-

It should say:

&charset ISO_8859-1:1987
NS !I Ct Pd Cu Ye BB SE ': Co -a << NO -- Rg 'm


Mnemonic '- (U+203E OVERLINE) should read 'm (U+00AF MACRON) here and in most other occurences of this mnemonic.

----- Verifier Notes -----
While this is correct as far as it goes -- that 'm is a better choice of mnemonic than '- is -- it is not appropriate as an erratum, because, for better or worse, the text that's there is what was intended when it was written. And as it stands, it doesn't really matter, as no one uses RFC 1345 any more, and hasn't for years. It's unlikely that an update will ever be done, but if one is, that's the time to make this correction throughout the document.
