       HTMLDocument::addHTTPHeader - Adds a HTTP header to the document


       Void addHTTPHeader( HTMLDocument doc, String name, String value )


       doc The HTML document

       name The name of the header

       value The contents of the header


       Adds   a   HTTP   header   to  the  document.  If  the  document  is  then  printed  using
       Webapp.displayPage (3kaya) , these headers will be sent to the client.

       The effects of multiple HTTP headers  with  the  same  name  vary.  Some  headers  may  be
       rewritten by the web server if they appear multiple times.

       You  can  change the HTTP status code using the special Status header. The default is 200,
       of course - due to a bug in older versions of Apache, explicitly setting a 200  status  is
       not  recommended.  Headers  with  names  beginning  "X-"  are  non-standard and could mean

    addHTTPHeader(doc,"Status","404 File not found");

       The characters allowed in HTTP headers are relatively restricted, especially in  the  name
       field,  the  most  obvious  restriction  being  that  they  may  not  contain  new  lines.
       Webapp.displayPage (3kaya) will throw an Exception if illegal characters are  found  -  be
       sure to check this if you write your own header output function.

       RFC 2616 ⟨⟩ describes the HTTP protocol including HTTP
       headers in detail

       You may set multiple headers with the same name, but this may not  be  sensible  for  some
       headers  (for  example, multiple Status headers make no sense, whereas multiple Set-Cookie
       headers are commonly used).
