WGLC issue: ambiguity in part 1 example

Part 1 section 2.1 example server response contains an entity body and a 
Content-Length header.

The Content-Length header is 2 bytes larger than the visible/printable 
bytes in the entity and it is not made clear that there are invisible 
trailer bytes being included in the in the displayed entity size.

I think at this early stage of the texts it would be best to keep things 
simple and only have the Content-Length equal to the visible bytes - 
"Hello world!" being 12 bytes long.
