LYNX-DEV Lynx and pinging Web ports

I have to get some network monitoring done.  Part of this involves pinging Web
ports to make sure they're alive and functioning.  I intend to do something
silly like "lynx -source url | fgrep -i </html>".  Heh heh, watch our ethernet
fade to 14.4 with all that traffic.  I don't know how to do this better, and
would appreciate any advice or help you could lend.  If nothing else, could you
produce a pointer to usable docs on the protocol?  I started reading the RFCs,
but they're way too formal to be useful.  Is there a particular query/response
response that are definitive and not yet verbose that you know of?

Btw, our Usenet action is down for the interim.  (I didn't break it! :)

Any help appreciated, [Ag] address@hidden
