47    <ul>
48      <li>
49        RFC 2231 defined I18N for header field parameters in MIME messages,
50        was partly supported in HTTP consumers for filename parameters in
51        Content-Disposition header fields.
52      </li>
53      <li>
54        <a href="http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/rfc5987.html">RFC 5987</a>, published in August 2010, profiles RFC 2231 for use in HTTP
55        messages.
56      </li>
57      <li>
58        Used in <a href="http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/rfc5989.html">RFC 5988</a> (Web Linking) and
59        <a href="http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/draft-ietf-httpbis-content-disp-latest.html">draft-ietf-httpbis-content-disp</a>
60        ("Use of the Content-Disposition Header Field in the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP)",
61        in the hands of the IESG).
62      </li>
63      <li>
64        Currently a Proposed Standard.
65      </li>
66      <li>
67        Since publication of RFC 5987, Internet Explorer and Chrome added
68        support. Firefox, Konqueror, and Opera had it long before. Safari
69        does not implement it.
70      </li>
71    </ul>
72
73    <h2 class="break">Proposed Next Steps</h2>
74    <ul>
75      <li>
76        Create implementation report, based on a subset of the Content-Disposition
77        tests at
78        <a href="http://greenbytes.de/tech/tc2231/">http://greenbytes.de/tech/tc2231/</a>.
79      </li>
80      <li>
81        Potentially further profile it (Microsoft's IE team didn't want to support ISO-8859-1,
82        only UTF-8).
83      </li>
84      <li>
85        Submit revision for publication as Draft Standard.
86      </li>
87      <li>
88        Reference from HTTPbis' "Considerations for new header fields"?
89      </li>
90      <li>
91        WG work item? (RFC 5987 was not).
92      </li>
93    </ul>
