The "agent" is the way the client tell the server who he is so that the
server can take appropriate action to send documents (well mostly javascript
or css) compatible wih the client.

Maybe some developper at Reuter considered it is no more important to
support "Mozilla/3.0", or maybe it is just a bug at server side !
