    Do some research for the rationale for 1.1

    That should state why someone thought 1.0 was deficient, and why 1.1 would be such a good idea as a solution to the problems of 1.0
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    As I understand it, a HTTP/1.0 request doesn't include the host field, which may be a problem where more than one URL is hosted on the one IP address. See Key Differences between HTTP/1.0 and HTTP/1.1.
