Re: [tlug] Firefox 3.0.1 doesn't respect <meta http-equiv="content-type">

According to the spec:

    The http-equiv attribute can be used in place of the name attribute
    and has a special significance when documents are retrieved via
    the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP). HTTP servers may use the
    property name specified by the http-equiv attribute to create an
    [RFC822]-style header in the HTTP response.

It says nothing about clients combining information from the
content-type header and the meta tag, as you appear to be doing here.

The problem is that browser programmers don't follow the spec[1] ;)
