Memo from Martin P Burns of PricewaterhouseCoopers

Hi Joe

I learned a wee bit from the ORA Pelican Book
(Web Client Programming with Perl).

If you have some Perl cluefulness, then it's a lot
of help.

Subject:  [thelist] HTTP/1.0 and HTTP/1.1

Interesting - so the meta question is this - how do browsers decide what
to provide to servers? Do they do any negotiation and decide to speak
one or the other? I'm not asking because I want to read the HTTP spec -
but in layman's terms - how do browsers and servers decide what to speak
to each other? Can a server speak either/or/both for the same domain?
