No. The HTTP editor read us the riot act on this one.
I spent some time thinking about the cheapest way to
fix it, but I dind't close the loop when work on HTML 4.01
started. Oops.

How about saying "this MUST be done EITHER using http headers, as it's up
to the http wg [or ietf, or iso, or whomever; I really don't know -msh210]
to define OR using <meta name..."?
