the :RFC: role redirects to URLs of the form: http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc3986.html

I prefer URLs of the form: http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3986
and have the following arguments for that:

  • they are hosted by IETF, which is the original source
  • they contain much more hyperlinks (page references, section references,
  • they contain links to the PDF and TXT versions
