Hi all,
I think there is a problem in URLs which don't supply "Content-Length"
Header and are HTTP/1.1. 
Consequently, Jigsaw doesn't know how to handle this kind of links and
throw an IOException.
As I understand it, the getInputStream() method in the Reply class does
the following:
1. Check the content length of the reply. If there's no content-length
(equals -1)
	goes on to the next step.
2. Check whether "chunked" transfer encoding exists. if not, continues
to next step.
3. Check whether this is an "observed" HttpStreamObserver
	(The Observer is set there by the HttpBasicServer only if this is a
keep-alive 
	transaction. All HTTP/1.1 keeps-alive by default). 
If the observer exists it should notifyFailure.

The problem is that this is NOT working, and the input stream is not
received.

U can try these urls in order to understand my HUGE problem :
	
      http://customnews.cnn.com/cnews/pna.myhome
      http://www.score.kaplan.com
      http://www-il.radview.com			

      Netscape browser gets "Document contains no data"

In my opinion this is a very SEVERE problem and we actually stuck with
it for over 2 months.
Is there anybody outhere who can help?

			please
