RFC 7997, "The Use of Non-ASCII Characters in RFCs", December 2016

Source of RFC: IAB

Errata ID: 7808
Status: Reported
Type: Editorial
Publication Format(s) : TEXT

Reported By: John Klensin
Date Reported: 2024-02-10

Section 1 says:

Please review the PDF version of this draft.

It should say:

Please review the "PDF with images" version of this draft.


This may not be precisely an erratum, but this seems like the right place to report and record it. While the above statement points to the PDF version (as explained further on, to be able to see the non-ASCII characters), if one goes to https://www.rfc-editor.org/search/rfc_search_detail.php for this RFC and clicks on "PDF" one gets a PDF rendering that is substantially identical to the text version, i.e., the non-ASCII characters do not appear. "PDF with images" works, but that is not what the specification says.

And, while I'm whining, the use of the term "draft" in that sentence is inappropriate and should have been caught during editing.
