The second bullet in HTML 4.01, 12.2.4:

    If a user agent cannot identify the type of a linked 
    resource, it should still attempt to process it. It 
    should alert the user and may allow the user to 
    intervene and identify the document type. 

The "document type" should be read "content type",
because the linked resource may not only be textual data.
