Subject: LINK TYPE=override/type

A simple question about using

<LINK REL="Something" HREF="somwhere" TYPE="content/type">

Does the TYPE here override any returned type from the HTTP 
connection?

That is, considering

<LINK REL="Stylesheet" HREF="neils.css" TYPE="text/css">

Say the server is setup incorrectly and returns 
"application/octet-stream" as the type instead.  Does the user agent 
use the TYPE from the LINK element as its type?  That is, will 
"text/css" be the type regardless of what the server returns?
