True, but the parse is pretty easy, and it can stop when it reaches
<BODY>. This type of request would not be used very often, only
for indexing tools, existence checks, robots, etc.
>What should it do for a document without a HEAD?
This could happen for non-html fetches, of course.
It should return an error - my first impulse, not having thought
about it much.
Similarly, I guess it should return an error if it got EOF before
</HEAD>. Either that, or it might be probably easier to just send
the whole document part after <HEAD> til EOF, assuming it is scanning
for <HEAD>, then just outputing chars until </HEAD>.
