Protocol (HTTP) messages cannot carry characters outside the ISO-
8859-1 character set.  RFC 2231 defines an encoding mechanism for use
in Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (MIME) headers.  This
document specifies an encoding suitable for use in HTTP header fields
that is compatible with a profile of the encoding defined in RFC
2231.  [STANDARDS TRACK]

protocol for the Internet community,and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Internet
