Subject 200 OK for an OPTIONS on a nonexistent URI?
Date Tue, 20 Apr 1999 22:13:53 GMT
I just noticed during some testing that 1.3.7-dev (at least all
the way back to 1.3.5-dev) responds to an OPTIONS request for a
nonexistent URI with "200 OK".

Section 9.2 (OPTIONS) of draft 6 of the new HTTP/1.1 spec doesn't
say anything in particular about whether this is appropriate; it
just says that IF the response status is 200, then the response
should include certain things.

I'm inclined to think this should be returning a 404 Not Found for

#ken    P-)}
