This function takes the name of an HTTP header (minus the HTTP_ prefix) as a parameter and returns its value. Examples of valid values for the HeaderName parameter include ACCEPT, REFERER, and USER_AGENT.

Not all headers will be populated in all cases, and if there is no value for the requested header (or no such header) the function will return an empty string.
