    13141314   The HEAD method is identical to GET except that the server &MUST-NOT;
    13151315   send a message body in the response (i.e., the response terminates at the
    1316    end of the header block). Aside from the payload header fields
    1317    (<xref target="payload"/>), the server &SHOULD; send the same header fields
     1316   end of the header block). The server &SHOULD; send the same header fields
    13181317   in response to a HEAD request as it would have sent if the request had been
    1319    a GET. This method can be used for obtaining metadata about the selected
    1320    representation without transferring the representation data. This method is
     1318   a GET, except that the payload header fields (<xref target="payload"/>)
     1319   &MAY; be omitted. This method can be used for obtaining metadata about the
     1320   selected representation without transferring the representation data and is
    13211321   often used for testing hypertext links for validity, accessibility, and
    13221322   recent modification.
