HTTP 0.9 Request answered with HTTP 1.1 Response





------- Additional Comments From nd@perlig.de  2004-01-26 07:50 -------
RFC 2616, 19.3 says, HTTP application SHOULD be tolerant. quote:

   Although this document specifies the requirements for the generation
   of HTTP/1.1 messages, not all applications will be correct in their
   implementation. We therefore recommend that operational applications
   be tolerant of deviations whenever those deviations can be
   interpreted unambiguously.

   Clients SHOULD be tolerant in parsing the Status-Line and servers
   tolerant when parsing the Request-Line. [...]

Being tolerant when acepting things _if_ it's safe to assume some fallback (and
it's safe here I think), is neither a mistake nor a thing owned by microsoft.
It's a basic principle, especially of networking applications.
