RFC 7230, "Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP/1.1): Message Syntax and Routing", June 2014

Source of RFC: httpbis (app)

Errata ID: 4779
Status: Held for Document Update
Type: Editorial

Reported By: William A. Rowe Jr.
Date Reported: 2016-08-18

Section A.2. says:

   [...] Non-US-ASCII content in header fields and the reason
   phrase has been obsoleted and made opaque (the TEXT rule was
   removed).  (Section 3.2.6)

It should say:

   [...] Non-US-ASCII content in header field values and the reason
   phrase has been obsoleted and made opaque (the TEXT rule was
   removed).  (Section 3.2.6)

Notes:

Section 3.2 plainly states header field names are token
(VCHARs less separators) as defined in 3.2.6.

The "header fields" identified in this footnote are neither
clear nor correct.

Alexey: While this is a clarification, the whole section is likely to be deleted when the document is revised.
