I stand corrected; here is what I get from www.microsoft.com:

HTTP/1.0 200 OK
Server: Microsoft-IIS/4.0
Content-Location: http://www.microsoft.com/Default.htm
Date: Tue, 15 Dec 1998 13:33:44 GMT
Content-Type: text/html

So, in the response it indicates HTTP/1.0 and *not* 1.1, so MS
IIS does *not* support HTTP 1.1... FWIW, Apache 1.3.x (which is
also available for MS Windows) reports:

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Tue, 15 Dec 1998 13:36:12 GMT
Server: Apache/1.3.1 (Unix)

So to the original poster of this question: no, the Microsoft HTTP
products don't support HTTP 1.1, however you can use other (free)
packages that do.
