validation of HTTP on the wire

I'm looking for a tool that validates a web server's conformance to HTTP
1.0/1.1. We are using a 3rd party embedded web server in a system we are
developing and we have evidence that it does not honor all of the requests
it gets. (It appears to occassionally consume requests for linked elements
in the original page.) The tool that I am thinking of would either process
the output of a tool like tcpdump (packets generated by a separate user
agent) or would operate as the user agent itself and simultaneously log
requests/responses, possibly with header info.

Any pointers are appreciated.
