    501501   requested. If the validator does not match, the server &MUST; ignore the

     502   <x:ref>Range</x:ref> header field. Note that this comparison by exact
     503   match, including when the validator is an <x:ref>HTTP-date</x:ref>, differs
     504   from the "earlier than or equal to" comparison used when evaluating an
     505   <x:ref>If-Unmodified-Since</x:ref> conditional.
