HTTP/1.0 & HTML+ questions

Hello all,

I am real close to having all the redirection from HTTP/1.0 and most of
the stuff for HTML+ finished in my emacs browser, and just had a few
questions that I'm not sure have been specified yet.

1. When a URL has been moved, and a response code of 301, 302, or 303 has
been returned, must the url be fully specified or could it be returned
as Location: somefile.html, where the original URL was

2. In HTML+, are forms allowed inside of <PRE> formatted sections? I know
<PRE> is outdated in HTML+, but should it be allowed? If its not, I
think it should be added to the spec - the only thing a <FORM> shouldn't
be allowed inside of is another form.

I might also just be overlooking something in the spec, but I couldn't find
anything in the most recent HTTP spec from cern - it just says it is
expecting a url.
