>>Apropos the discussion of 'ascii' encoding of attributes & values:
> A Revised Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts
>> Title : MIME Parameter Value and Encoded Words: Character Sets,
> Language, and Continuations
> Author(s) : N. Freed, K. Moore
> Filename : draft-freed-pvcsc-01.txt
> Pages : 10
> Date : 11/04/1996
>>This memo defines extensions to the RFC MIME-IMB media type
>and RFC 1806 disposition parameter value mechanisms to
>provide (1) a means to specify parameter values in character sets
>other than US-ASCII, (2) to specify the language to be used should
>the value be displayed, and (3) a continuation mechanism for long
>parameter values to avoid problems with header line wrapping.
>>This memo also defines an extension to the encoded words defined in RFC
>MIME-HEADERS to allow the specification of the language to be used for
>display as well as the character set.
