(1) Section 6.2, page 18 - typo (word omission) The words in the 9th line of the text, [...] "followed by one or hexadecimal digits" [...] should say: [...] "followed by one or more hexadecimal digits" [...] ^^^^^^ (2) Section 8, 2nd paragraph (page 22) - typo The RFC says: Care must be take to properly encode and decode data to avoid attacks. [...] it should say: vv Care must be taken to properly encode and decode data to avoid attacks. [...] (3) Subtle inconsistency between Section 6.1 and Section 6.2 On page 17, Section 6.1 states the Notational Convention: (2) Terminal symbols are strings of characters surrounded by double quotes. ^^^^^^ Nevertheless, throughout the new Section 6.2 (on page 18), all terminal symbols, e.g. the "generalized digits" -- the terminals to build octal, decimal, and hexadecimal constants, are specified as characters surrounded by *single* quotes. ^^^^^^ Although this style perhaps was inspired by the `C` language, IMHO, its use is inconsistent in that context.
