    295295   A "weak entity tag," indicated by the "W/" prefix, &MAY; be shared by
    296    two entities of a resource only if the entities are equivalent and
    297    could be substituted for each other with no significant change in
    298    semantics. A weak entity tag can only be used for weak comparison.
     296   two representations of a resource only if the origin server considers them
     297   to be semantically equivalent. A weak entity tag can only be used for weak
     298   comparison.
    299299</t>
    300300<t>
    301301   An entity tag &MUST; be unique across all versions of all entities
     
    533533   is to send both a strong entity tag and a Last-Modified value.
    534534</t>
    535535<t>
    536    In order to be legal, a strong entity tag &MUST; change whenever the
    537    associated entity value changes in any way. A weak entity tag &SHOULD;
    538    change whenever the associated entity changes in a semantically
    539    significant way.
     536   A strong entity tag &MUST; change whenever the associated entity value
     537   changes in any way. A weak entity tag &SHOULD; change whenever the
     538   associated entity changes in a way that the server determines is
     539   semantically significant.

    541541      <x:h>Note:</x:h> in order to provide semantically transparent caching, an
    542542      origin server must avoid reusing a specific strong entity tag
