I've been reading, with great interest, RFC2616; specifically the sections
on persistant connetions and pipelining.  Can anyone tell me if there is a
way to 'force' a browser into using persitent connections, and even
pipelining, via HTML (assuming the browser supports HTTP 1.1)?  

I've been playing with MSIE 5.0, and created a test page with hyperlinks
pointing to the same server.  Every load results in multiple connections
being made to the webserver.  I've already verified that HTTP/1.1 support
has been activated (via tools/options/etc.).  And, traces confirm that
HTTP/1.1 is being sent in the "GET" start-line.  Have I misinterpreted the
specification?  I'm under the assumption that because the hyperlinks
reference the same address/port, a single connection should be used to
retrieve the 'documents'.

Thanks in advance,
