I am following the RFC-2518 WebDAV HTTP protocol to implement WebDAV for 
my web server. So far I am able to have webfolders connecting to our web 
server via WebDAV on a Windows NT platform. 

However the problem I am having is that Office 2000 keep opening documents 
as read-only therefore not allowing me to save directly. I have made my
web server provide a successful lock to the document I want to open and
still no luck. 

I have sniffed the traffic between Office 2000 and my web server and
compare it with other working WebDAV server. The comparsion shows no major
differences except for cookies being set which I don't think is the
problem. Also I have try to match the response of other WebDAV servers
working successfully with Office 2000 and still don't know what else is
needed for my web server to work.

Does anybody know why Office 2000 is always flagging my documents to 
read-only?

Any help/ideas will be greatly appreciated. Attach is a log of my web
server interaction with Word 2000.
