caches MUST treat invalid Expires values as in the past





------- Additional Comments From rsushma@novell.com  2003-07-09 06:36 -------
This patch (attachement ID 7186)is to fix the 
date followed by junk, in all RFC 850, RFC 1123 
and Asctime formats.

Do we need to handle the condition where the 
Date is not represented in GMT or no time 
zone is specified? 
(Example: "Sun, 06 Nov 1994 08:49:37 ")

RFC 2616, 3.3.1 says: 

	All HTTP date/time stamps MUST be represented in GMT,  
	without exception. 

   	HTTP-date is case sensitive and MUST NOT include
   	additional LWS beyond that specifically included as SP in the
   	grammar.

   	Note: Recipients of date values are encouraged to be robust 
      	in accepting date values that may have been sent by non-HTTP
      	applications, as is sometimes the case when retrieving or 
      	posting messages via proxies/gateways to SMTP or NNTP.
