Subject Re: CGI "SERVER_PROTOCOL"
Date Wed, 29 Jan 1997 01:39:42 GMT
I think it should be set to the protocol being used for the request.  I
agree the name is unfortunate.  I can't think of much useful information
you can get from knowing what the server can support.  If the client could
use it, it would be using it.  (well, not entirely, but...)

http://hoohoo.ncsa.uiuc.edu/cgi/env.html sez:

     * SERVER_PROTOCOL                                                
       The name and revision of the information protcol this request came
       in with. Format: protocol/revision
