ISSUE-196: Define user agent http response handling behaviour

ua-http-resp-handling

Define user agent http response handling behaviour

State:
CLOSED
Product:
HTML 5 spec
Raised by:
Julian Reschke
Opened on:
2012-01-14
Description:
(raised on behalf of Cameron Jones):

User agent handling of HTTP responses is currently undefined which has lead to
divergent behavior (<http://www.cmhjones.com/browser-http-test-matrix.html>) through independent interpretation of the HTTP
specification. The expected behavior should be defined within HTML to enable
servers to return correct responses per HTTP specification with confidence that
they will be processed uniformly across agents.
