Reported By: literal slash needed in gopher BNF

Section 5. says:

gopherurl      = "gopher://" hostport [ / [ gtype [ selector
                 [ "%09" search [ "%09" gopher+_string ] ] ] ] ]

It should say:

gopherurl      = "gopher://" hostport [ "/" [ gtype [ selector
                 [ "%09" search [ "%09" gopher+_string ] ] ] ] ]

Notes:

The slash after the first square bracket open should be quoted because it is a literal slash, as evidenced in the example in section 3.4.1:

3.4.1. Gopher URL syntax

gopher://<host>:<port>/<gopher-path>

[20] coded character set.

Notes:

The word "character" is misspelled as "chararacter."
