Hi Again,

I've analysed all the HTTP status codes in combination with different 
methods and response headers, and I can't find a way for a server to 
indicate that a resource /does not/ exist.

Can anybody suggest a way of indicating this? or is there scope for a 
4xx No Such Resource status (or similar)?

Cheers,

Nathan
