This is an update to draft-reschke-webdav-mount-02, based on early 
feedback from the RFC Editor's review. Changes are only editorial 
(nothing normative changed), with the biggest change being made to the 
mount example 

Best regards, Julian

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

	Title		: Mounting WebDAV (Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning) servers
	Author(s)	: J. Reschke

In current Web browsers, there is no uniform way to specify that a
    user clicking on a link will be presented with an editable view of a
    WebDAV server.  For example, it is frequently desirable to be able to
    click on a link, and have this link open a window that can handle
    drag and drop interaction with the resources of a WebDAV server.

    This document specifies a mechanism and a document format that
    enables Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) servers to
    send "mounting" information to a WebDAV client.  The mechanism is
    designed to work on any platform and with any combination of browser
    and WebDAV client, relying solely on the well-understood dispatch of
    documents through their MIME type.

NOTE:	The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
	MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
	feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
	command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
	a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
	exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
	"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
	up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
	how to manipulate these messages.
