I've got a document which has a table in it. (This is just on my
local machine at the moment).

Can I, and if so - how, deliver different versions of the document
to different browsers so that netscape/arena etc. get a version
with a <table> in, and others get a <pre>-formatted asciified
version of the table?

I figure I can do it using a cgi script and looking at the REFERER
environment variable and guessing from that, but that seems inelegant
and clumsy.

On this machine, I've got NCSA 1.3, Apache 0.6.5? and CERN 3.0
httpd's.

Any advice?
