	Title		: The User Agent Hint Response Header
	Author(s)	: D. Morris
	Filename	: draft-ietf-http-uahint-01.txt
	Pages		: 8
	Date		: 1997-09-16
This document proposes a HTTP response header called UA-Hint, which
   can be used by applications (servers) to describe handling hints
   which will allow user agents to more accurately reflect the intent of
   the web application designer for the handling and presentation of the
   response entity.  The UA-Hint header is intended to be an extensible
   general mechanism by which the application can suggest user agent
   behaviors which alter or extend the behaviors specified in HTTP/1.1
   (RFC 2068) with the express purpose of improving the usability of the
   resulting application.  Intended considerations include enablement of
   a safe POST and refined handling of the traditional history buffer.

NOTE:	The mail server at ds.internic.net can return the document in
	MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
	feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
	command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
	a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
	exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
	"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
	up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
	how to manipulate these messages.

implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
