[summary: can anyone provide links to sites using "HTML vs RDF" Content
Negotiation that they would be happy for me to test against?]

Hi all,

I'm setting up content negotiation on a site I'm working on, so that
humans with browsers get Content-Type: text/html and RDF-capable
user-agents get Content-Type: application/rdf+xml.

I've written my Apache RewriteRules, and installed a Firefox extension
allowing me to modify the headers to say only Accept:
application/rdf+xml but the content negotiation isn't working.

My problem is that I can't determine if it's an error in the
RewriteRules or that the Firefox extension isn't doing what it claims.
My hunch is the former, but I've no way to tell right now. Does anyone
have a site that does this form of content negotiation that they'd be
happy for me to use for some low-traffic testing so I can isolate the

Many thanks in advance,
