Rendering the web?  In particular, it's not uncommon for servers (esp. when CGIs 
are involved) to produce things like:

   Content-Type: text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1
   Content-Type: text/plain

which then get normalized to:

   Content-Type: text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1, text/plain

Not sure where that normalization happens offhand (server end or Gecko end).
