Some news re ISSUE-24 contentTypeOverride-24...

Noah, I don't know why I didn't think of it earlier... I should
read this thing soon anyway, so if you put it on the TAG ftf
reading list, you'd be doing me a favor...

                     Content-Type Processing Model


   Many Web servers supply incorrect Content-Type headers with their
   HTTP responses.  In order to be compatible with these Web servers,
   Web browsers must consider the content of HTTP responses as well as
   the Content-Type header when determining the effective mime type of
   the response.  This document describes an algorithm for determining
   the effective mime type of HTTP responses that balances security and
   compatibility considerations.
