I can't believe I'm unique in serving up 404 jpegs! * Squiggle especially
needs 404's to be content-negotiated, to something it can understand, rather
than the traditonal .  (there's a similar situation with HTTP 302/307 status
which RFC 2616 says "The entity of the response SHOULD contain a short
hypertext note with a hyperlink to the new URI(s)" - but doesn't suggest
what mark-up language I should use for that note.)

Jim.
