to recap the question: why does my decode-multipart-form-data not use (or even parse) the "Content-Transfer-Encoding" header. actually, your assumption "not defined by Andreas and never encountered in the reality ???" holds true :) although i'm well aware of the various mime, multipart mime and related specs, in practice i never encountered a browser that actually uses Content-Transfer-Encoding. "Each part may be encoded and the "content-transfer-encoding" header supplied if the value of that part does not conform to the default encoding" (RFC 1867, section 3.3) the whole content-transfer-encoding stuff stems from the email background. as said before, i've never encountered it when using HTTP forms with multipart/form-data encoding. -- Best regards, Andreas mailto:[andreas--bolka--gmx--net]
