Each Status-Code is described below, including a description of which method(s) it can follow and any metainformation required in the response. 10.1 Informational 1xx This class of status code indicates a provisional response, consisting only of the Status-Line and optional headers, and is terminated by an empty line. There are no required headers for this class of status code. Since HTTP/1.0 did not define any 1xx status codes, servers MUST NOT send a 1xx response to an HTTP/1.0 client except under experimental conditions. A client MUST be prepared to accept one or more 1xx status responses prior to a regular response, even if the client does not expect a 100 (Continue) status message.
Advertisement Website security is an interesting topic and should be high on the radar of anyone who has a Web presence under their control. Ineffective Web security leads to all of the things that make us hate the Web: spam, viruses, identity theft, to name a few. The problem with Web security is that, as important as it is, it is also very complex. I am quite sure that some of you reading this are already part of an network of attack computers and that your servers are sending out spam messages without you even knowing it. Your emails and passwords have been harvested and resold to people who think you need either a new watch, a male enhancement product or a cheap mortgage.

Univeral Resource Identifiers -- Axioms of Web architecture Up to Design Issues Universal Resource Identifiers -- Axioms of Web Architecture The operation of the World Wide Web, and its interoperability between platforms of differing hardware and software manufacturers, depend on the specifications of protocols such as HTTP, data formats such as HTML, and other syntaxes such as the URL or, more generally, URI specifications.
What do HTTP URIs Identify? - Design Issues Up to Design Issues Note: (2006). This architectural question has now been decided by the W3C TAG, in a compromise which I think works quite well, and is described in a later short note and a TAG finding. Background Note This question has been addressed only vaguely in the specifications. However, the lack of very concise logical definition of such things had not been a problem, until the formal systems started to use them.
GoodURIs - ESW Wiki What qualities make a URI work well in RDF and on the web in general? Unambiguous. Is there a consensus of meaning, where everyone using the URI as a name uses it to refer to essentially the same thing? Or is there confusion and disagreement among reasonable people?
