Subject: Content-Type for HTML 3.

What should the content-type: header for HTML 3 be? I have seen the
following:

text/html; level=3
text/html; version=3
text/html; version=3.0

What about CSS stylesheets? I have seen many suggestions, but what
Content-Types do the existing browsers (i.e. w3-mode and Arena) accept? I
would like to know these types because I'm writing a content-negotiating
CGI script for our NCSA server. Currently it uses application/x-css for
CSS stylesheets, application/x-navistyle for NaviPress stylesheets,
text/html for HTML 2 documents, and text/html; level=3 for HTML 3
documents. 

Also, are the MIME types in the Accept: header in any particular order
(i.e. preference?) I couldn't find this information in the online docs...
the reason I need to know is that I want to be able to send the client the
file format it most wants.
