Subject: Apache 1.3b4-dev sends empty Content-Encoding header

	Hello,

  When opening the Apache site today, my browser (OmniWeb 2.7b3) opened  
the HTML externally instead of rendering it in its window. As this was  
very surprising and never happened before, I suspected that something  
changed in your server headers, and indeed I found that on certain pages,  
Apache/1.3b4-dev now sends an empty Content-Encoding header. Apparently  
this affects pages whose content type is not derived from the file  
extension ".html", i.e. directory index mappings (like your home page) or  
script output (like your bug reports form). I have attached two manual  
HTTP requests to illustrate the issue.

  Hope this helps,
