51    <h2 class="break">History</h2>
52    <ul>
53      <li>Extensions for non-ASCII characters in header field values using "parameter" syntax</li>
54      <li>RFC 5987 (2010) profiled the old MIME-related spec for use in HTTP</li>
55      <li>At that point already used for Content-Disposition by some user agents</li>
56      <li>During/after work on RFC 5987 picked up by the other user agents as well</li>
57      <li>...now interoperable (with a small twist)</li>
58    </ul>
59    <h2 class="break">Changes in RFC5987bis</h2>
60    <ul>
61      <li>Reduces set of supported charsets to just UTF-8 (reflecting Chrome and IE)</li>
62      <li>Now based on RFC 723*</li>
63      <li>Does not attempt to redefine "parameter" ABNF anymore (because there really is no common one in the HTTP specs right now)</li>
64    </ul>
65    <h2 class="break">Status</h2>
66    <ul>
67      <li>Most (all?) planned changes done, some cleanup might be required</li>
68      <li>Experimentally uses non-ASCII characters in examples (coordinated with both RSE and IESG)</li>
69      <li>Not clear yet whether we can continue that experiment if we finish before the RFC Format change activity is finished.</li>
70      <li>WGLC after next draft?</li>
