910               extensions to HTTP. Circumstances under which credential caching can interfere with the application's security model include

912            </p>
913            <ul>

917               <li>Applications which include a session termination indication (such as a "logout" or "commit" button on a page) after which

923               in this problem. In particular, user agents which cache credentials are encouraged to provide a readily accessible mechanism
