>The Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) is an application-level protocol
>for distributed, collaborative, hypermedia information systems. It is a
>generic, stateless, protocol which can be used for many tasks, such as
>name servers and distributed object management systems, through
>extension of its request methods. A feature of HTTP is the typing and
>negotiation of data representation, allowing systems to be built
>independently of the data being transferred.
>HTTP has been in use by the World-Wide Web global information initiative
>since 1990. This specification defines the protocol referred to as
>''HTTP/1.1'', and is an update to RFC2068 .
>At the time of this revision's submission, there were no known outstanding
>technical or editorial issues. The HTTP/1.1 issues list, along with
>many representations of this specification including Postscript, Microsoft
>Word, with and without change bars, with or without gzip compression
>can be found at http://www.w3.org/Protocols/HTTP/Issues/.
