Good morning !

----

Sorry for the off-topic question:
Which RFC says that an application should be "forgiving" for incoming
data but be "strict" (e..g maxmimum conformance to the "standard") for
outgoing data ?

I have to write a small article and like to quote that - but I don't
like to read ~2000 RFCs first ;-(

Bye,
Roland
