The quoted statement is misleading. The gateway has to speak HTTP
to get pages from standard web servers. But internally, i-mode is
using ALP (which is probably a lot simpler) instead of HTTP, and
the gateway translates between the two protocols. So it's true
that phones never send or receive HTTP headers, but if you're
working on server-side applications you don't need to worry about
that. (This might, however, affect people trying to send specific
HTTP header fields in i-appli. I don't know; I've not looked at
