    public interface Header
    Represents an HTTP header field.

    The HTTP header fields follow the same generic format as that given in Section 3.1 of RFC 822. Each header field consists of a name followed by a colon (":") and the field value. Field names are case-insensitive. The field value MAY be preceded by any amount of LWS, though a single SP is preferred.

         message-header = field-name ":" [ field-value ]
         field-name     = token
         field-value    = *( field-content | LWS )
         field-content  = <the OCTETs making up the field-value
                          and consisting of either *TEXT or combinations
                          of token, separators, and quoted-string>
