!? doHead() !?

In the O'Reilly book on Servlets, on page 19, first paragraph, there is a reference to the HttpServlet method doHead().
This method does not exist right? If so, where?
If i'm right, then I'm somewhat disappointed by the error since the printing that I have is from Jan 2000 and the book was first published in Oct 1998.
At any rate, there are two methods that I found in the HttpServletResponse interface that seem to set header fields any way I want. Is that correct?
