Concerning byte ranges, and HTML documents:  How does the browser know
	about the document title?

When we retrieve part of HTML document, does the server specify the
document title itself, or we have to concatenate ranges.
Example of the first case would be a line of response in case of byte
range retrieval, like this:

Document-title: The title of the whole document

This information would be extracted at server side, looking for <TITLE>
... </TITLE> on document beginning.  (This imposes HTML awareness on server,
which is maybe against current policy).

In the second case we would have to specify positions of document parts
by hand, on the client side, like specifying ranges:

	bytes 24-56, 10567-12894
