This is interesting to me. Look at this (excerpt from HTTP/1.1 spec):
   "HTTP communication usually takes place over TCP/IP connections. The
		       ^^^^^^^
   default port is TCP 80, but other ports can be used. This does not
   preclude HTTP from being implemented on top of any other protocol on
   the Internet, or on other networks. HTTP only presumes a reliable
   transport; any protocol that provides such guarantees can be used;"
