Hi

There appears to be an incorrect link on the page
http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec3.html

Under section 3.7.2, the text reads ...

All multipart types share a common syntax, as defined in section 5.1.1 of
> RFC 2046 [40], and MUST include a boundary parameter as part of the media
> type value


The string "5.1.1" is hyperlinked to the URI "
http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec5.html#sec5.1.1", but this
appears to be incorrect, given the context.

The correct target URI would most likely be "
http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2046.txt", but given that that URI is a text page
(instead of, say, HTML) it is not possible to give a direct link to an
anchor at the appropriate section of the document. And the link to the
document is already provided in the string "[40]" in the same sentence.
Therefore, the link should probably just be removed entirely

Cheers,
Phil Wright
