Summary:  Make HTTP requests more standards-compliant

Original Submission:  A HTTP URLConnection sends headers with some lower-case 
letters instead of upper case letters. We should use the same spelling as in 
RFC 2616.

In gnu/java/net/protocol/http/, this should be changed:

"user-agent" -> "User-Agent"
"accept" -> "Accept"
"Content-type" -> "Content-Type"
"Content-length" -> "Content-Length"

You may say that this is not important, but look at this code:

URLConnection u = ...;
u.setRequestProperty("User-Agent", "MyAgent/1.0");

This works with Sun's class library. With Classpath, these two headers are in 
the same request:

User-Agent: MyAgent/1.0
user-agent: gnu-libgcj/3.4.0 20040316 (prerelease)
