It says "or". Meaning if there is a body, there is no need
for the Content-Length header, right? It's mandatory only
with value 0, to indicate that there is no body. Otherwise,
dynamically generated content would have been a major problem
with HTTP/1.0, or so I figure. But I'm not familiar with
RFC 1945, so please correct me if I'm wrong.

cheers,
