 A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts 
 directories. This draft is a work item of the HyperText Transfer Protocol 
 Working Group of the IETF.                                                

       Title     : Use and interpretation of HTTP version numbers          
       Author(s) : J. Mogul, R. Fielding, J. Gettys, H. Frystyk

HTTP request and response messages include an HTTP protocol version number.
Some confusion exists concerning the proper use and interpretation of HTTP 
version numbers, and concerning interoperability of HTTP implementations of
different protocol versions.  This document is an attempt to clarify the 
situation.  It is not a modification of the intended meaning of the 
existing HTTP/1.0 and HTTP/1.1 documents, but it does describe the 
intention of the authors of those documents, and can be considered 
definitive when there is any ambiguity in those documents concerning HTTP 
version numbers, for all versions of HTTP.

Internet-Drafts are also available by mail.	
Send a message to:  mailserv@ds.internic.net. In the body type: 
     "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-http-versions-00.txt".
NOTE: The mail server at ds.internic.net can return the document in
      MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
      feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
      command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
      a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
      exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
      "multipart" MIME messages (i.e., documents which have been split
      up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
      how to manipulate these messages.

Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader 
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version
of the Internet-Draft.
