Re: [Technical Errata Reported] RFC7230 (6333)

For what it's worth, the Erratum is also technically incorrect, in that 
it says:
right and left quotes (U+8217 and U+8216)

The two characters are, in HTML/XML notation:
     Hexadecimal: ’‘
     Decimal: ’‘

U+-notation is hexadecimal, so this should be U+2019 and U+2018.
U+8217 and U+8216 are two Kanji, 舗 舖. is a very convenient tool for 
such checks.

Regards,   Martin.
