Is this with Safari ? I remember darkly that webkit has a rather
interesting choice for its default Accept header, which makes it not all
that useful for content negotiation[1]

You can force that HTML be sent back by appending '?format=html' to each
URL. Not sure if there's a way to fix the Safari Accept header to
something sensible.
