On page 107 of
<URL:http://www.w3.org/Protocols/HTTP/1.1/draft-ietf-http-v11-spec-08.txt> the
syntax diagram lists:

Accept-Encoding  = "Accept-Encoding" ":" 1#( codings [ ";" "q" "=" qvalue ] )
codings          = ( content-codings | "*" )

But then goes on to list the examples:

Accept-Encoding: compress, gzip
Accept-Encoding:
Accept-Encoding: *
Accept-Encoding: compress;q=0.5, gzip;q=1.0
Accept-Encoding: gzip=1.0; identity=0.5; *;q=0

Is example 2 legal according to the syntax above? I assumed the "1#" meant "one
or more."
