The Attributes.Name class represents an attribute name stored in this Map. Valid attribute names are case-insensitive, are restricted to the ASCII characters in the set [0-9a-zA-Z_-], and cannot exceed 70 characters in length. Attribute values can contain any characters and will be UTF8-encoded when written to the output stream. See the JAR File Specification for more information about valid attribute names and values.
