In other words... "the web" will continue to thrive on hacks and sniffing data to support users' expectations in spite of the data on "the web". I appreciate the motivation (it's not the users' fault the content provider can't get it right), it saddens me that there will no end of quirks-mode-like data interpretation. And that after this many years, we still can't get content-type and encodings straightened out. -Fred -- Fred L.
