What?

Please cite sources! It helps prevent the spread of such
misinformation:

15 Content Negotiation
A generic resource has multiple entities associated with it, all of
which are representations of the content of the resource.  Content
negotiation is the process of selecting the best representation when a
GET or HEAD request is made on the generic resource.  HTTP/1.1 has
provisions for two kinds of content negotiation: opaque negotiation and
transparent negotiation.
