6.3. Mail reader handling of incorrectly formed encoded-words

It is possible that an encoded-word that is legal according to the syntax defined in section 2, is incorrectly formed according to the rules for the encoding being used. For example:

  1. An encoded-word which contains characters which are not legal for a particular encoding (for example, a '-' in the "B" encoding), is incorrectly formed.

  2. Any encoded-word which encodes a non-integral number of characters or octets is incorrectly formed.

A mail reader need not attempt to display the text associated with an encoded-word that is incorrectly formed. However, a mail reader MUST NOT prevent the display or handling of a message because an encoded- word is incorrectly formed.
