This is my favorite comment in this thread, bar none!  Why, oh why are 
you all trying so hard to continue to support broken behavior instead of 
slapping down the people who insist on doing it wrong?  If the user 
agents (go Firefox!) just refused to sniff, then no one would send 
nonsense content.  'cause it wouldn't work.
