The current CVS version says that: “Unless set through |setRequestHeader()<http://dev.w3.org/cvsweb/%7Echeckout%7E/2006/webapi/XMLHttpRequest/Overview.html?rev=1.176&content-type=text/html;%20charset=iso-8859-1#setrequestheader>|
user agents /should/ set the |Accept| and |Accept-Language| headers as well.”
This was originally “it /must not/ automatically set the |Accept|.” Why was this changed? Why should user agents pretend that they know what kind of resource the user expects by setting an Accept header that is unreliable? FWIW, Internet Explorer and Safari set the (reasonably acceptable */*), but it would be better to leave it out entirely. Also see: http://www.grauw.nl/blog/entry/470 ~Grauw -- Ushiko-san!
