The Validator is not currently able to do that, though some of the
Validator developers showed some interest in developing an online
service for this purpose, which might eventually happen and even be
integrated into the Validator.

Subscribers of http://groups.yahoo.com/group/http-compliance/ might
know about tools that can do it. In general it should be easy to
make such a tool, as RFC 2616 has a formal grammar for most things,
which could easily be used directly or be translated into something
more suitable for a specific application.

We would be particularily interested in such functionality in order to
validate the content of <meta http-equiv=...> elements in HTML/XHTML
documents and other markup languages where HTTP headers can be used
directly.
