HTTP Headers

Puckhead points this site out. Still looking for that site which displays the full header list though. You can simulate the effect by telnetting into a web server and entering a Get command manually through there. Eg: the web server on my computer (midkemia.levitate.org) returns these headers:

GET /index.cfm

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Server: Microsoft-IIS/5.0
Date: Tue, 10 Oct 2000 07:29:41 GMT
Content-type: text/html
Page-Completion-Status: Normal

[HTML follows]

Some servers return more extensive headers, like Zipworld's Apache one:
GET /index.html HTTP/1.0
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Tue, 10 Oct 2000 06:48:22 GMT
Server: Apache/1.3.12 (Unix) PHP/3.0.16 PHP/4.0.1pl2

Hmm... might write a header grabbing page for myself...
