PUT is a method that is defined in HTTP/1.1 [1].  It was not in HTTP/1.0
[2].  As far as I can tell Netscape doesn't support the 1.1 specs yet,
although it is definitely aware of them.

[1] HTTP 1.1 Internet draft <URL:http://www.w3.org/pub/WWW/Protocols/#HTTP1_1>
[2] RFC 1245 <URL:http://ds.internic.net/rfc/rfc1945.txt>
