Subject Dumb TRACE question
Date Sat, 31 Jan 1998 20:32:45 GMT
When I send a "TRACE HTTP/1.1" request to my Apache server, it responds
right away with "TRACE HTTP/1.1".  Unlike a GET request, it doesn't wait
for a blank line before it responds, and it also doesn't send me back a
200 OK or any other indication of what is going on.

Sending this same request to both Microsoft and Netscape servers results
in a 404 because I guess they both expect a URI.  I thought the HTTP/1.1
spec stated quite clearly that a TRACE request should not include a URI.
