Once I have fetched a URL I can find the return document's Content-Type
header information using HTAnchor_format() (which returns an HTAtom object).
However, I have a document whose Content-Type header *was* test/plain when
the server sent it but on the client-side HTAnchor_format() shows it as
`www/unknown'. Can anyone explain this behavior? 

Does this have to do with the converters registered for the stream/library? 

I have initialized the library so that the following converters are being
used:

    _conv = HTList_new();

    // GENERIC converters

    HTConversion_add(_conv,"multipart/*", "*/*", HTBoundary, 1.0, 0.0, 0.0);
    HTConversion_add(_conv,"message/rfc822", "*/*", HTMIMEConvert, 
		     1.0, 0.0, 0.0);
    HTConversion_add(_conv,"text/x-http", "*/*", HTTPStatus_new,
		     1.0, 0.0, 0.0);

    HTFormat_setConversion(_conv);

And the request object is bound to a HTStream created by HTFWriter_new().
