Yep, that's done.  Manning was able to insert a link header easily (I was afraid they might not be able to write raw HTML, but they can).

This seems like good guidance for anyone wishing to provide LD the easiest possible way: Add a Turtle file, link to it and provide a link header.  Of course, we need to live with a bogus HTTP Content-Type, but that's unfortunately quite common even for people who control their own server.

Thanks again to Manning for the quick response!

Regards,
Dave
