Section 2.3.1 says:

  key        =  1*23( %x01-05 / %x07-08 / %x0C / %x0E-1F / %x21-7F )
                  ; any 7-bit US_ASCII character,
                  ; except NUL, CR, LF, FF, h/v TABs, and " "

It should say:

  key        =  1*23( %x01-05 / %x07-08 / %x0C / %x0E-1F / %x21-7F )
                  ; any 7-bit US_ASCII character,
                  ; except NUL, CR, LF, ACK, h/v TABs, and " "

OR

  key        =  1*23( %x01-08 / %x0E-1F / %x21-7F )
                  ; any 7-bit US_ASCII character,
                  ; except NUL, CR, LF, FF, h/v TABs, and " "

Notes:

The hex for ACK and FF are x06 and x0C, respectively. The expression of the original text excludes ACK and includes FF. Therefore there is an error in either the expression or the comments following.
If the error is in the comments, then the first corrected text should be selected.
If the error is in the expression, then the second corrected text should be selected.
