     1516   The asterisk "*" ("asterisk form") means that the request does not apply to a
    15171517   particular resource, but to the server itself, and is only allowed
    15181518   when the method used does not necessarily apply to a resource. One

    15251525   The absolute-URI form is &REQUIRED; when the request is being made to a
    15261526   proxy. The proxy is requested to forward the request or service it
     
    15411541   them in requests to proxies.

    15471547   The most common form of request-target is that used to identify a
    1548    resource on an origin server or gateway. In this case the absolute
     1548   resource on an origin server or gateway ("path-absolute form"). In this case the absolute
    15491549   path of the URI &MUST; be transmitted (see <xref target="http.uri"/>, path-absolute) as
    15501550   the request-target, and the network location of the URI (authority) &MUST;

    1681    If the request-target uses the path-absolute (plus optional query) syntax
    1682    or if it is just the asterisk "*", then the effective request URI is
    1683    constructed by concatenating
     1681   If the request-target uses the path-absolute form or the asterisk form,
     1682   then the effective request URI is constructed by concatenating
