Subject: Re: stupid multiple definitions for the TYPE attribute

Does the HTML group think that HTTP should have a header called
"Content-Style-Type"?

If not, I regard <META http-equiv="Content-Style-Type" content="text/css">
used as a way of indicating information about the document that is to be
used in any context, for documents that may never be transferred over
any mechanism called HTTP, specifying something that HTTP protocol
machinery should not need to care about, as a layering violation; the
"name=" should be used whenever the HTTP header is not an intended
consequence.
