I just saw a message from a user complaining she couldn't acces the
Internet Movie Database (http://www.imdb.com) with Lynx (version 2.5FM on
an SGI). Sure enough, this server is running Apache and Lynx is sending an
Accept header that includes text/html;q=0.000.

Of course, this doesn't mean anything is wrong with the HTTP/1.1 draft, but
is another example of how things can break during the transition.

If you're going to reinvent the wheel, at least try to come
to come up with a better one.
