This document specifies many Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) schemes that were originally specified in RFC 1738 [RFC1738]. Some of these schemes are specified more fully in this document. The purpose of this document is to allow RFC 1738 to be moved to historic while keeping the information about the schemes on standards track.
