This document clarifies the semantics associated with the Content-Range
HTTP header and associated Partial Content (206) response code.
It specifically allows a server to produce a Content-Range response
whose range is a subrange of the corresponding range requested using a
previous Range request. The HTTP protocol syntax is not modified.
Instead, this document clarifies that a server responding to a client
requesting a range (x-y) may respond with a range ((x+e)-(y-f)) for
nonzero integers e,f such that (x+e) < (y-f). In addition, it clarifies
the semantics of Request ranges which contain only a starting value.
