Subject Re: Is the HTTP-version in a request case sensitive?

I looked it up in the HTTP/1.1 RFC (


       Quotation marks surround literal text. Unless stated otherwise,
       the text is case-insensitive.


    The version of an HTTP message is indicated by an HTTP-Version field
    in the first line of the message.

        HTTP-Version   = "HTTP" "/" 1*DIGIT "." 1*DIGIT

quote end.

And it doesn't state that it is case sensitive.. so I understand it that it 
is case-insensitive.
