Errata ID: 5616
Status: Reported

Section 4.5 says:

For example, a form with a text field in
which a user typed "Joe owes <eu>100", where <eu> is the Euro symbol,
might have form data returned as:
    --AaB03x
    content-disposition: form-data; name="field1"
    content-type: text/plain;charset=UTF-8
    content-transfer-encoding: quoted-printable

    Joe owes =E2=82=AC100.
    --AaB03x

It should say:

For example, a form with a text field in
which a user typed "Joe owes <eu>100", where <eu> is the Euro symbol,
might have form data returned as:
    --AaB03x
    content-disposition: form-data; name="field1"
    content-type: text/plain;charset=UTF-8
    content-transfer-encoding: quoted-printable

    Joe owes <eu>100.
    --AaB03x

Notes:

Section 4.7 says that "Senders SHOULD NOT generate any parts with a Content-Transfer-Encoding header field."
