>             Project: HttpComponents HttpClient
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: HttpClient
>    Affects Versions: 4.3.3
>            Reporter: Cservenak, Tamas
>            Priority: Minor

> One HTTP server serving up ZIP/JAR file sends this header in it's response:
> {noformat}
> Content-Type: application/zip; charset=binary
> {noformat}
> While this is _malformed_ header value (according to rfc2068 "Applications SHOULD limit
their use of character sets to those defined by the IANA registry", and IANA does not define
"binary"), HttpClient should be more robust IMO.
> In this case, it might accept the mime type {{application/zip}} only and just neglect
the charset (that results in {{java.nio.charset.UnsupportedCharsetException: binary}} anyway),
since {{application/zip}} is not a text subtype.
