Following an erratum publicly reported in November 2008, the followings are the proposed changes on the document. All changes refer to Section 2.1.

The second example in the section:

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Content-Type: text/html
Content-Language: en
Content-Location: http://www.example.com/people.en.html
Vary: accept, accept-language

The document should include, after the paragraph starting with "Here we see…", the following paragraph:

The Vary header indicates which request headers were used by the server to select a representation. In the example, the server's response tells the client that sending a different Accept or Accept-Language header might have resulted in a different response. Knowing this is important for caches that might sit in the middle between server and client.

Finally, the third example in the section should now read:

HTTP/1.1 302 Found
Location: http://www.example.com/people/alice.en.html
Vary: accept, accept-language

The following corrections and clarifications are based on feedback from Daniel Barclay (daniel@fgm.com): http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-sweo-ig/2009Jun/0000.html
