I just procured the following set of request headers that my browser sends (I
ran netcat on port 89, so it's a little different than the normal request.)
GET / HTTP/1.1
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (BeOS; U; BeOS BePC; en-US; rv:1.7b) Gecko/20040410
Accept-Language: en-us,en;q=0.5
Accept-Encoding: gzip,deflate
Accept-Charset: ISO-8859-1,utf-8;q=0.7,*;q=0.7
Keep-Alive: 300
Connection: keep-alive

So, it appears the browser is aware of language and even requests English.
I'm wondering if the fact that there's no "chunked" listed under Accept-Encoding
is significant.  Is it implied that HTTP 1.1 clients can accept chunked
encoding?  I still don't think it matters though, because it seems from my
tests (mentioned previously) that the browser *does* in fact accept chunked
encoding, but Apache doesn't do it properly in certain circumstances.

I also read up on content negotiation.  I use the "Options MultiViews" method,
not the explicit type-map .var method, if that's of any consequence.

Thanks again,
