The HTTP-WG of the IETF has decided to split the draft 01
document into a "Best Current Practice" HTTP/1.0 and a standards-track
HTTP/1.1.  The following announcement reflects the availability of
the initial BCP draft.

       Title     : Hypertext Transfer Protocol -- HTTP/1.0                 
       Author(s) : T. Berners-Lee, R. Fielding, H. Frystyk
       Filename  : draft-ietf-http-v10-spec-02.txt, .ps
       Pages     : 45
       Date      : 08/13/1995

The Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) is an application-level protocol 
with the lightness and speed necessary for distributed, collaborative, 
hypermedia information systems. It is a generic, stateless, object-oriented
protocol which can be used for many tasks, such as name servers and 
distributed object management systems, through extension of its request 
methods (commands). A feature of HTTP is the typing and negotiation of data
representation, allowing systems to be built independently of the data 
being transferred.                               

HTTP has been in use by the World-Wide Web global information initiative 
since 1990.  This specification reflects common usage of the protocol 
referred to as "HTTP/1.0".
