The Namespaces in XML specification cites the URI specification:

     IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force) RFC 2396: Uniform Resource
	Identifiers (URI): Generic Syntax, eds. T. Berners-Lee,
	R. Fielding, L. Masinter. August 1998. 

hmm... no link; RFC2396 is available at

Also, you might find the introductory material at
