Hi,  

In reading though the HTTP/1.0 memo with info header

I'm a bit confused by section 3.2.2 http URL.  Based on the
general syntax presented in section 3.2.1, an http URL can
include 'params'.  

[Section 3.2.2 of RFC1738 shows the use of ;type=<typecode>
as intended for ftp URLs.  Section 3.3 of RFC1738 describing
an http URL admits no 'params'.]


Should section 3.2.2 be modified to the following?

http_URL = "http:" "//" host [":" port] ["/" [path] ["?" query]]


(apologies if this issue has been raised before)
