to make sure, though.

Tried IE6 and IE9 Release Candidate as well, just to see if there was a difference.  They
behave in the same way, showing XML by default unless ?format=html is appended.

Extracted the Accept header using Fiddler ( on Win7 with IE9 RC.

Here's the full request header for the default page:

  GET http://localhost:3001/api HTTP/1.1
  Accept: text/html, application/xhtml+xml, */*
  Accept-Language: en-AU
  User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 9.0; Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; Trident/5.0)
  Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate
  Connection: Keep-Alive
  Host: localhost:3001

Not seeing anything obvious in there saying to send XML in preference to HTML though.  Seems
equal weighting of the default value (1).  ?

Regards and best wishes,
