In HTTP, content codings allow for payload encodings such as for
compression or integrity checks.  In particular, the "gzip" content
coding is widely used for payload data sent in response messages.

Content codings can be used in request messages as well; however,
discoverability is not on par with response messages.  This document
extends the HTTP "Accept-Encoding" header field for use in responses,
to indicate the content codings that are supported in requests.

This document is a product of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol Bis Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet Standards Track
protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Official
Internet Protocol Standards (https://www.rfc-editor.org/standards) for the 
standardization state and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this 
memo is unlimited.
