non ascii character in headers?

I'm looking at a possible bug in my companies http handling library.
The code seems to assume that there are no bytes with the higher order
bit set in the http Location header. I'm thinking this will break if
the Location header's URI contains non-ascii characters.

Is my thinking correct, or is there some rule that prohibits non-ascii
chars in an http header?
