Subject would have thought NS server would have basic HTTP/1.1 right...
Date Mon, 08 Dec 1997 00:44:43 GMT
While some of the below is nothing new and I posted about it before,
the extent of the non-complience to HTTP/1.1 is quite distressing.
There are things here that fundamentally break many things.

When I first started seeing this I figured that it was just some
sort of beta versions or something.  Now it is becoming more and more
widespread... so I'm thinking that somehow Netscape actually realeased
a product that does this sort of stuff.

Anyone have a contact at NS to be sure this stuff gets fixed?  It really
is in our best interest to see it fixed, I guess.
