You are looking for this:

http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec14.html#sec14.35.2

Note that the server might simply ignore a "Range" header: this is
often the case with dynamic content. If your servlet (or, rather, the
servlet that ultimately handles the request) does not respect a
client's "Range" header, then the client may get more bytes in the
response than desired. Be sure to read the response headers carefully
to determine what information is actually being returned (i.e. all
bytes, or a range that is not exactly what the client requested).
