Sometimes you will need to send static files over http using ASP.Net - for example if you want to control access to the file programmatically. Such tasks can be simply handled by Response.WriteFile(FileName) for plain html files, but there are two problems:
1. GetContentType - returns content-type of a file from registry
2. DateFromHTTP - converts string date from http header (Fri, 09 Sep 2005 07:51:28 GMT format) to Date format
3. DateToHTTPDate - converts date to string format.
