They are treated purely as strings.

The decision on what to output is made by your code. In the case of 
mod_status, mod_status chooses to output data as HTML, which is why it 
goes about sticking in <HTML> tags.

It depends on the level of guarantee you need.

If you are just worried that the data you just wrote must be sent to the 
client right now, I suspect the bucket brigade API might help you with 
flush buckets.

If you send buckets instead of strings, you have more control over what 
you want to send. You might put a string in a bucket, and then another 
string in a bucket, followed by a flush bucket, followed by another 
string in a bucket.

The flush bucket tells the networking code "send what you have right 
now, don't wait for any more".
