URL syntax draft From: Larry Masinter <firstname.lastname@example.org> Message-Id: <96Dec19.105623pst."2694"@golden.parc.xerox.com> Date: Thu, 19 Dec 1996 10:56:23 PST Martin, Your suggestions are appreciated. However, it would be useful for you to supply more details. # Would really be nice to have examples of URLs pointing outside # the US to show that the WWW is really worldwide now. # I guess there should be plenty of them around :-). Please suggest what you'd like to see in the examples section instead. Since they were just examples meant to be evocative rather than proscriptive, I wouldn't want to go on at length. # Many people immediately associate this with MIME "charset", and I guess # they will be right. But others will be lost. Please add a reference. What is the right reference? There are many documents that define 'charset'. Again, the list of things that URLs don't depend on was not meant to be complete. # Please change "hialpha" to "upalpha". Thanks. Will do. # I will discuss other aspects of this paragraph in another mail. # The reference to "nationalities" should be dropped altogether, # unless somebody can show that there is a serious relation # between URLs and nationalities (would highly surprise me). Again, please suggest alternatives.
