          URI Fragment Identifiers for the text/csv Media Type
                    draft-hausenblas-csv-fragment-03

Abstract

   This memo defines URI fragment identifiers for text/csv MIME
   entities.  These fragment identifiers make it possible to refer to
   parts of a text/csv MIME entity, identified by row, column, or cell.
   Fragment identification can use single items, or ranges.
