Hi,

"Wed, 32 March 2009 00:00:00 GMT" matches HTTP-date, and as far as I  
can tell is completely valid to produce and send. However, what it  
actually means is completely undefined.

Equally, "Mon, 03 May 2009 00:00:00 GMT" matches HTTP-date, but the  
wkday and and date1 disagree. This too is valid, but what it means is  
undefined.

Actually, I can't find anything that even defines what "Sun, 03 May  
2009 00:00:00 GMT" a valid and logically correct date means.
