Hardly means I'm clueless, simply means I need to adjust my code to 
check the q value.

I got the code snippet off of a Firefox developer blog. Guess he's 
clueless too, as he didn't check the q value either.

There's a difference between clueless and sloppy. Sloppy is probably a 
better description for my bug.

Browsers that don't know how to properly parse xhtml (IE IE8) seem to 
prefer not to even send it as part of what they can handle. But no, I 
haven't tested all browsers. The main 4 gui get pages they properly 
render (all but IE getting xhtml), wget and links get pages they 
properly render. But yes, I'll fix the bug.
