Netscape 1.0 wasn't house trained in this area. Netscape 1.1 is
because we had to support

Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8850-1

or similar. In fact, the 1.1 server will send parameters on
content-types but it has a gruesome hack in there to make it so it
will only return them to Netscape 1.1 or higher.
