    Concerning byte ranges, and HTML documents:  How does the browser know
    about the document title?

Byte ranges won't work with text/html (or {text,application}/sgml either).
Additional information describing the parsing context, such as the set of
open elements and their attributes, the RE parsed state, sibling sequence
state, etc., would be needed to effectively parse and format a fragment of
an HTML document.  [Consider for a moment the problem of how to assign list
item sequence numbers in a style sheet based on element hierarchy which is
to be used on an HTML document fragment.]
