That would indicate a recognition that I am happy with.  Check the 
HTTP headers then use the TYPE attribute if not specific, but I would 
also like to see the TYPE Attribute override it.

This allows experimentaiton with new types that servers don't 
recognize.

I would like to see TYPE added to the <A> element in order to do the 
same override.
