For hypertext (which SHOULD be used according to that RFC), I suggest 
the one called HyperText Markup Language.

But I agree that it makes sense to serve other versions if the UA 
doesn't accept (X)HTML. So if a UA like Squiggle says it doesn't accept 
HTML, my server should ask what it would prefer, and serve that. In this 
case, SVG for example (which is more accessible than JPEG in many if not 
most cases).
