    12871287            <p id="rfc.section.3.2.p.4">Since messages are parsed using a generic algorithm, independent of the individual header field names, the contents within
    1288                a given field-value are not parsed until a later stage of message interpretation (usually after the message's entire header
    1289                section has been processed). Consequently, this specification does not use specific ABNF rules to define each "Field-Name:
    1290                Field Value" pair, as was done in previous editions. Instead, this specification defines each of its header fields using an
    1291                ABNF rule that is named according to the registered field-name and that defines only the syntax within the field-value (i.e.,
    1292                after it has been extracted from the header section by a generic field parser).
     1288               a given field value are not parsed until a later stage of message interpretation (usually after the message's entire header
     1289               section has been processed). Consequently, this specification does not use ABNF rules to define the "Field-Name: Field Value"
     1290               pair, as was done in previous editions. Instead, this specification uses ABNF rules which are named according to each registered
     1291               field name, wherein the rule defines the valid grammar for that field's corresponding field values (i.e., after the field-value
     1292               has been extracted from the header section by a generic field parser).
