Thanks. My version must have been older but it's very good that new versions 
have it in there.

But, you're misisng my point on mod_headers which is completely separate 
from the MIME type issue (I shouldn't put 2 issues in a single e-mail 
thread!) I simply want to include a response header that points to a file 
(the fact that it's an RDF file is irrelevant here) If I can include:

Link '<filename>; /="/"; rel="thing" type="foo/bar";'

in the HTTP Response Headers without having to install any modules (such as 
mod_headers) then that would be very helpful.
