    32043204   The <x:dfn>408 (Request Timeout)</x:dfn> status code indicates
    32053205   that the server did not receive a complete request message within the time
    3206    that it was prepared to wait. Since the only reason to send this message
    3207    is if the server has decided to close the connection, the server &SHOULD;
    3208    indicate that intent with the <x:ref>close</x:ref> connection option
    3209    (&header-connection;). If the client has an outstanding request in transit,
     3206   that it was prepared to wait.
     3207   A server &SHOULD; send the <x:ref>close</x:ref> connection option
     3208   (&header-connection;) in the response, since 408 implies that the server
     3209   has decided to close the connection rather than continue waiting.
     3210   If the client has an outstanding request in transit,
    32103211   the client &MAY; repeat that request on a new connection.
