Since 'Content-Style-Type' isn't a header defined in RFC2616, it
should probably have been 'X-Content-Style-Type', except it would
never have made it into the spec in that form.  So, there's more than
a little handwaving going on already.  Adding yet another META-hack,
of course, was sheer desperation:)
