Hi, Dan. I'm writing because you're listed as the person who created the
hypertext version of RFC 2616 available from w3.org:

        http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616.html

I wanted to let you know that some of the q-values in section 14.1 are
incorrectly linked to non-existent parts of the document:

        http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec14.html#sec14.1

I assume that there's a regular expression creating hyperlinks for
anything that matches \d+\.\d+ . One possible hack is to ignore anything
that starts with 0; a more principled approach would be to check that
sections exist before linking to them. Probably the easiest thing to do
is just remove the links by hand, or ignore the problem.

Thanks,

~Evan
