Present it with an HTTP/1.1 request?

They decide it together.
The client sends the highest HTTP version it supports, the server responds
with the highest version it supports, but not higher than the client's
request.
E.g. a server that supports HTTP/1.1 must reply with HTTP/1.0, if the client
sends a HTTP/1.0 request.
Or a client sending a HTTP/1.1 request may get a HTTP/1.0 response, but
never a HTTP/1.2 or higher (even if this would exist).

And by the way: most of your recent questions seem to be focused on the HTTP
protocol - this has nothing to do (not much at least...) with HTML, and I
would suggest that you ask these questions in a more appropriate newsgroup.

And did you read the RFC? http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc2616.html
