  +feature of HTTP/1.1 provide long-lived HTTP sessions which allow
  +multiple requests to be sent over the same TCP connection.  In some
  +cases this has been shown to result in an almost 50% speedup in
  +latency times for HTML documents with many images.  To enable
  +Keep-Alive connections in Apache 1.2 and later, set <code>KeepAlive
  +On</code>.</p>
   
  -<p>In order for Keep-Alive support to be used:
  -<ul>
  -<li>Keep-Alive support must be enabled by setting this directive
  -to <code>On</code>.</li>
  -<li>The client must support Keep-Alive requests.  Most current
  -clients do support Keep-Alive requests.</li>
  -<li>The length of the file must be known in advance.  This means that most 
  -CGI scripts, server-parsed pages (SSI), and server-generated directory 
  -listings, will not use the Keep-Alive protocol.</li>
  -</ul>
  +<p>For HTTP/1.0 clients, Keep-Alive connections will only be used if
  +they are specifically requested by a client.  In addition, a
  +Keep-Alive connection with an HTTP/1.0 client can only be used when
  +the length of the content is known in advance.  This implies that
  +dynamic content such as CGI output, SSI pages, and server-generated
  +directory listings will generally not use Keep-Alive connections to
  +HTTP/1.0 clients.  For HTTP/1.1 clients, persistent connections are
  +the default unless otherwise specified.  Chunked encoding will be used
  +in order to send content of unknown length over persistent
  +connections.</p>
