As a faster means to confirming your headers and all the
other data transferred during an HTTP session, try using
Ethereal. It's a packet-sniffer; it's been ported to several
platforms, and has some very cool abilities.
After capturing an HTTP session or two, you can scroll
through all the sniffed packets and get a blow-by-blow
analysis of the session including (you guessed it) headers
sent by the browser and headers sent by the server, as well
as document text. Much faster than waiting for Netcraft to
recrawl your server.
I discovered Ethereal over this weekend, and it's now an
essential tool in my toolbox. I'll be using it for my own
CGI programming. Definitely. Find it here.
Good luck on satisfying your client.
