ISSUE 31: qdtext BNF

From: Julian Reschke <julian.reschke@gmx.de>
Date: Fri, 20 Apr 2007 14:22:08 +0200
Message-ID: <4628B070.4070606@gmx.de>
To: HTTP Working Group <ietf-http-wg@w3.org>

(see <http://www.w3.org/Protocols/HTTP/1.1/rfc2616bis/issues/#i31>)

The proposed resolution was to say:

   qdtext         = <any TEXT except <"> and "\">

This fixes the original issue, but preserves another problem; the ABNF 
production being broken because the prose contains the "<" character. So 
I'd like to change this to:

   qdtext         = <any TEXT excluding '"' and '\'>

or even

   DQUOTE         = %x22
   qdtext         = <any TEXT excluding DQUOTE and "\">

(doing a first step towards RFC4234 compliance)

Best regards, Julian
