[webkit-help] response buffering

I am investigating when does Safari fire requests for assets in
ordinary HTML documents.

After some tests using a simple HTML document with a CSS link in its
head element, my conjecture is that Safari buffers 1024 bytes before
issuing any request, rather than asking for the CSS when the node is
fetched from the socket. Content-Type has a charset, so as far as I
can tell content sniffing is not triggered (but I don't know how to
verify that).

Can anyone confirm or deny this please?
