This file contains citations for all FYIs in numeric order.  The FYIs
(For Your Information) documents form a sub-series of the RFC series,
specifically those documents that may be of particular interest
to Internet users.  The corresponding RFCs have status INFORMATIONAL.

FYI citations appear in this format:

  ####  Title of FYI.  Author 1, Author 2, Author 3.  Issue date.
        (Format: ASCII) (Obsoletes xxx) (Obsoleted by xxx) (Updates xxx)
        (Updated by xxx) (Also RFC####)

For example:

  0008 Site Security Handbook. B. Fraser. September 1997. (Format:
       TXT=191772 bytes) (Obsoletes RFC1244) (Also RFC2196)

Key to citations:

#### is the FYI number. The remainder of the fields are the same as
those of the corresponding RFC, whose number is given in the final
(Also RFC####) field.

Following the BCP number are the title, the author(s), and the
publication date of the RFC.  Each of these is terminated by a period.

The format and length follow in parenthesis.  One or more of the
following alternative formats are listed:  ASCII text (TXT), PostScript
(PS), and/or Portable Document Format (PDF).  Each format is followed 
by an equals sign and the number of bytes for that version.  For example 
(Format:TXT=aaaaa, PS=bbbbbb bytes) shows that the ASCII text version is 
aaaaa bytes, and the PostScript version of the RFC is bbbbbb bytes.

Obsoletes xxxx refers to other RFCs that this one replaces;
Obsoleted by xxxx refers to RFCs that have replaced this one.
Updates xxxx refers to other RFCs that this one merely updates but
does not replace); Updated by xxxx refers to RFCs that have updated
(but not replaced) this one.  Generally, only immediately succeeding
and/or preceding RFCs are indicated, not the entire history of each
related earlier or later RFC in a related series.
