Description

The ABNF in http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/draft-ietf-httpbis-p1-messaging-06.html#rfc.section.4.2.p.7 for "comment" seems to have the same problem as mentioned in Ticket #31 for "quoted-string". I.e. "ctext" includes the "\" character and thus "(\)" is ambiguous, either "\)" is a "quoted-pair" and the comment is still open or it is a "ctext" backslash followed by ")" thus ending the comment.

Proposed solution: exclude "\" from ctext.

Also, reported by Brian Smith in http://www.w3.org/mid/002201c9cac3$0be2dba0$23a892e0$@org:

Nitpick: The Kleene star is unnecessary and inconsistent with obs-text. This is enough:

ctext = OWS / %x21-27 / %x2A-5B / %x5D-7E / obs-text

From [574]:

Disallow \ in ctext, add prose explanation of ABNF, remove unneeded "*" from ctext and qdtext (related to #162)
