Section 3.4.2 says:

   o  Delete all WSP characters at the end of each unfolded header field

It should say:

   o  Delete the SP character, if present, at the end of each unfolded
      header field value before its final CRLF


A prior step in this section suggests that header field values include the trailing CRLF. If that is the case, then a header field value can't end with WSP, which suggests that this step is incorrectly specified. The correction I give here restores the apparent intent of this step.

[MSK: The corrected text was modified after discussion on the WG mailing list.]
