    344345   HTTP responses corresponding to prior requests that used the same key. The
    345346   most common form of cache entry is a successful result of a retrieval
    346    request: i.e., a <x:ref>200 (OK)</x:ref> response containing a
    347    representation of the resource identified by the request target. However,
    348    it is also possible to cache negative results (e.g., <x:ref>404 (Not
    349    Found)</x:ref>, incomplete results (e.g., <x:ref>206 (Partial
    350    Content)</x:ref>), and responses to methods other than GET if the method's
    351    definition allows such caching and defines something suitable for use as a
    352    cache key.
     347   request: i.e., a <x:ref>200 (OK)</x:ref> response to a GET request, which
     348   contains a representation of the resource identified by the request target
     349   (&GET;). However, it is also possible to cache
     350   negative results (e.g., <x:ref>404 (Not Found)</x:ref>),
     351   incomplete results (e.g., <x:ref>206 (Partial Content)</x:ref>), and
