    18071807   The Status-Code element is a 3-digit integer result code of the
    18081808   attempt to understand and satisfy the request. These codes are fully
    1809    defined in &status-codes;. The Reason-Phrase is intended to give a short
    1810    textual description of the Status-Code. The Status-Code is intended
    1811    for use by automata and the Reason-Phrase is intended for the human
    1812    user. The client is not required to examine or display the Reason-Phrase.
     1809   defined in &status-codes;.  The Reason Phrase exists for the sole
     1810   purpose of providing a textual description associated with the numeric
     1811   status code, out of deference to earlier Internet application protocols
     1812   that were more frequently used with interactive text clients.
     1813   A client &SHOULD; ignore the content of the Reason Phrase.
