Subject: Link checking (only)

This is probably more of an http question, but...

Is there a standard way to check the existence of a URL resource without
actually downloading it? Preferably something supported by "all" web
servers? Hmm, that brings up another question: How does one find out what
commands are supported by different web servers?
