A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts 
directories. This draft is a work item of the Uniform Resource Identifiers 
Working Group of the IETF.                                                 

       Title     : URN Resolution Overview                                 
       Author(s) : P. Hoffman, R. Daniel
       Filename  : draft-ietf-uri-urn-res-descript-00.txt
       Pages     : 3
       Date      : 05/01/1995

This document gives an overview of how Uniform Resource Names (URNs) will 
be resolved. It describes how different URN resolution schemes will fit 
together, the requirements for the multiple URN schemes, expectations for 
URN clients, and other general resolution issues.    
This document does not cover any specific resolution schemes, the syntax 
for URNs, or the format of resolution results. It is expected that these 
issues (and other URN-related topics) will be covered in different Internet
Drafts submitted to the IETF URI Working Group.

Internet-Drafts are also available by mail.	
Send a message to:  mailserv@ds.internic.net. In the body type: 
     "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-uri-urn-res-descript-00.txt".
NOTE: The mail server at ds.internic.net can return the document in
      MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
      feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
      command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
      a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
      exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
      "multipart" MIME messages (i.e., documents which have been split
      up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
      how to manipulate these messages.
For questions, please mail to Internet-Drafts@cnri.reston.va.us.

Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader 
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version
of the Internet-Draft.
