    Request headers are the metadata that the user sends to the server like: browser version, browser language, user cookies etc.

    Response headers are the metadata that the server sends back to the user like: content type, cookies, date etc.

    You can get/set headers like this:

    string language = Request.Headers["Accept-Languge"] // browser languages
    Response.Headers["Content-Type"] = "text/html"; //html page

    There are also properties for the common use headers like:

    Response.ContentType = "text/html"
    Response.Charset= "ISO-8859-13"
