Hi Ken,

The 1968 revision allows LF to occur on its own compared to 1967's where
it always had to be LF CR or CR LF, but other than that still had many
of 67's oddities, e.g. ‘!’ could be rendered as ‘!’ or ‘|’, ditto ‘^’
that was allowed to look like ‘¬’.  Probably not the creator of that
Content-Type field's intention.

Cheers, Ralph.
