A good way to figure out what you need is to telnet to your favorite server which is already sending out similar data. For example, if you can read the first 15 lines or so of it's response to a proper GET, that'll contain your header.

telnet 80 Trying
Connected to
Escape character is '^]'

GET HTTP/1.0 // you'll need to press Enter a few times until you get a return
anyway... just incase you want a header to just display, here's one for ya...
HTTP/1.1 200 OK Date: Tue, 29 Aug 2000 14:00:22 GMT Server: Apache/1.3.12 (Unix) PHP/4.0.1pl2 mod_ssl/2.6.5 OpenSSL/0.9.5a Last-Modified: Mon, 24 Jul 2000 13:28:52 GMT ETag: "179c3-37ee-397c4494" Accept-Ranges: bytes Content-Length: 14318 Connection: close Content-Type: text/html

to out put this to a client, you'd put a CR before and after the header, and start your code after the header.
