    187187   The Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) is an application-level protocol for
    188    distributed, collaborative, hypertext information systems. HTTP has been in
    189    use by the World Wide Web global information initiative since 1990. This
    190    document is Part 2 of the six-part specification that defines the protocol
    191    referred to as "HTTP/1.1".

    194    Part 2 defines the semantics of HTTP messages, as expressed by request
     188   distributed, collaborative, hypertext information systems. This document
     189   defines the semantics of HTTP/1.1 messages, as expressed by request
    195190   methods, request header fields, response status codes, and response header
    196    fields, the payload of messages as metadata and body content, and the
     191   fields, along with the payload of messages (metadata and body content) and
    197192   mechanisms for content negotiation.

     217   Each HTTP message is either a request or a response. A server listens on a
     218   connection for a request, parses each message received, interprets the
     219   message semantics in relation to the identified request target, and
     220   responds to that request with one or more response messages.
    221221   This document defines HTTP/1.1 request and response semantics in terms of
    222222   the architecture, syntax notation, and conformance criteria defined in
    223    &architecture;. Each HTTP message is either a request or a response.

    227    messages.
