: in HTTP Basic Auth userid

Travis Vachon-3

Hi folks

According to RFC 2617 : is not allowed in the userid portion of the  
pre-base64-encoded authentication token. I was not able to find any  
standard mechanism for escaping : in this string. Does such a  
mechanism exist?

Thanks very much,

Travis Vachon
