(ii) In the third paragraph of section 2, change "canonical form of
the data." to "canonical form of the MIME body part.  The MIME body
part definition appears in the MIME definition [1]."

This change is technically incorrect.  The MIME "body part", as
defined by RFC 1521, contains both headers and the transfer-encoded
form of the data.  It is not what the MD5 algorithm is computed on.
