Description Martin 2007-03-15 17:20:17 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.5.6)
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs
OS:                Linux

The current query URL of the "IETF Requests for Comments" is http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc\{@}.txt. Please change it to http://tools.ietf.org/html/\{@} as it seems to be the much better choice. It looks nicer and has hyperlinks for navigation and links to other RFCs. If you need the plaintext version, there is a link to it.

Type rfc:822 and you will immediately see that it was obsoleted by rfc:2822 and updated by some other rfcs, which the current RFC query URL doesn't tell you.

You can search for drafts: Type rfc:annotatemore and you fill find the current version of the IMAP ANNOTATEMORE draft. You can navigate between the versions and if it is released as RFC, there will be a link to it.

Thank you.

to ensure the HTML version shown instead of the text one. This provides the
added benefit of allowing a user to navigate RFCs as properly hyperlinked
document. Moreover, those that want the simple text display can simply click
on the links provides in the HTML view to view a text or even a PDF version
of the document.
