could someone please unsubscribe me - this is all way too technical and I
could do without the 500 emails everytime I log in - has anyone considered
providing the message strings in a "daily digest". let me know if you do!!

good luck all.

Even if 30 CSI were realistic, I believe section 8.1.2.2 of HTTP 1.1
<ftp://ftp.isi.edu/in-notes/rfc2616.txt> on pipelining should address your
issue.  But I'm not all that well read on HTTP/1.1.

As a bonus, using entities for client side includes places the names of
the required entities to retrieve at the beginning of the document.  So a
UA can begin downloading the pieces to include even before the spot where
it needs to be included is retrieved.
