Fwd: I-D Action: draft-reschke-basicauth-enc-03.txt

FYI: this is a minor update (adding a note about XHR sometimes using a 
different encoding default). At this point there's nothing left to do 
here except for waiting for feedback; hopefully from implementers. 
Should I try to get it published as is?

A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts 
directories.

	Title           : An Encoding Parameter for HTTP Basic Authentication
	Author(s)       : Julian F. Reschke
	Filename        : draft-reschke-basicauth-enc-03.txt
	Pages           : 9
	Date            : 2012-01-25

    The "Basic" authentication scheme defined in RFC 2617 does not
    properly define how to treat non-ASCII characters.  This has lead to
    a situation where user agent implementations disagree, and servers
    make different assumptions based on the locales they are running in.
    There is little interoperability for characters in the ISO-8859-1
    character set, and even less interoperability for any characters
    beyond that.

    This document defines a backwards-compatible extension to "Basic",
    specifying the server's character encoding expectation, using a new
    authentication scheme parameter.
