RFC 3587, "IPv6 Global Unicast Address Format", August 2003

Source of RFC: ipv6 (int)

Status: Reported

Section 3 says:

    | 3 |     45 bits         |  16 bits  |       64 bits              |
    +---+---------------------+-----------+----------------------------+
    |001|global routing prefix| subnet ID |       interface ID         |
    +---+---------------------+-----------+----------------------------+

It should say:

    | 3 |     45 bits         |  16 bits  |       64 bits              |
    +---+---------------------+-----------+----------------------------+
    |001|                     | subnet ID |       interface ID         |
    +---+---------------------+-----------+----------------------------+
    |<-global routing prefix->|

Notes:

In the last figure of Section 3. Address Format, the global routing prefix should inlcude the prefix 001 in order to be consistent with the first two figures in the same section.
