    1269    Request methods are considered
    1270    "<x:dfn anchor="cacheable">cacheable</x:dfn>" if it is possible and useful
    1271    to answer a current client request with a stored response from a prior
    1272    request.  GET and HEAD are defined to be cacheable.  In general, safe
    1273    methods that do not depend on a current or authoritative response are
    1274    cacheable, though the overwhelming majority of caches only support
    1275    GET and HEAD. HTTP requirements for cache behavior and cacheable responses
    1276    are defined in &caching;.
     1269   Request methods can be defined as "<x:dfn
     1270   anchor="cacheable">cacheable</x:dfn>" to indicate that responses to them are
     1271   allowed to be stored for future reuse; for specific requirements see
     1272   &caching;. In general, safe methods that do not depend on a current or
     1273   authoritative response are defined as cacheable; this specification defines
     1274   GET, HEAD and POST as cacheable, although the overwhelming majority of
     1275   cache implementations only support GET and HEAD.
