Wow! I just got onto this list and got 5 quick answers (all correct) to my
first question... The answer being that the text should be:

HEAD /index.html HTTP/1.0 <CRLF> <CRLF>

Thanks for the responses... what you suggested worked in that it did elicit
a response... I notice though that while all servers return an up-to-date
"Date:" line, not all return the "Last-Modified:" line... any ideas how to
ensure that I'll always have one or the other which would indicate when the
page was last updated?

Thanks,

Steve

PS- I noticed that the 5 responses to my original message all replied to me
directly... is that the way you all do it on this list? No public
responses?
