RE: [xml-dev] RE: Encoding charset of HTTP Basic Authentication

--- David
A simple insertion of the text "UTF8
 encoded prior to base64" would have nailed it.

------ Julian
If you actually had read the spec, you would know why that doesn't work.

Unless you mean: "back in 1997" (RFC 2068).
Yes I "actually" read the spec but no I dont know why that wouldn't work.
Maybe you could enlighten me ? 
Maybe it's that time travel thing where UTF8 was invented after HTTP ... ?
Is that to which you were referring ?
I've been around for both but honestly can't remember which came first, the
chicken or the egg.
