Organization: IETF
Publication Date: 1 November 2009
Status: active
Page Count: 36
scope:

This document specifies the syntax of Netnews articles in the context of the Internet Message Format [RFC5322] and Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (MIME) [RFC2045]. This document obsoletes [RFC1036], updating the syntax of Netnews articles to reflect current practice and incorporating changes and clarifications specified in other documents such as [Son-of-1036].

This is the first in a set of documents that obsolete [RFC1036]. This document focuses on the syntax and semantics of Netnews articles. [RFC5537] is also a Standards Track document and describes the protocol issues of Netnews articles, independent of transport protocols such as the Network News Transfer Protocol (NNTP) [RFC3977]. [USEAGE], "Usenet Best Practice", describes implementation recommendations to improve interoperability and usability.

This specification is intended as a definition of what article content format is to be passed between systems. Although many news systems locally store articles in this format (which eliminates the need for translation between formats), local storage is outside of the scope of this standard.
