However, I am finding that I have to special case for the several different types of RSS standards that our there (Atom 1.0, RSS 1.0, RSS 2.0, etc.).

Good tool to view response headers

I am looking for a tool to allow me to find out the response headers that are being sent back from my server.

What tools can I use that will dump the http headers and show me a request/response trail for my web app? The web app is running on apache and is written in python.
