note to protocol designers and implementers

Hereafter proposed protocols shall be submitted in the form of

on-line documents, preferably as nls files at the Network

Information Center. This will greatly facilitate the review

process and enable editorial and substantive changes to proceed

quickly. This also will permit timely updating of protocol

documents as may be neccessitated by future decisions. On-line

documents are also easily distributed to the network community.

If you find great difficulty in complying with this request

please contact me.

It should be noted by all Telnet protocol readers and especially

implementers that all the existing Telnet Options that involve

subnegotiation are modified [see RFC 562] to terminate the

subnegotiation strings with IAC SE. The value of SE is 240. Also

note that within subnegotiations the occurance of a byte with the

value 255 [IAC] requires doubling that byte on transmission.
