I just downloaded my copy of Netscape 1.1 beta 1, very happy to see them
exploring with tables and other 3.0 features in a mostly standard way. 
However, I was very dismayed to see that the Accept: headers did *not*
include something indicating it was HTML 3.0-ready, like text/x-html3 or
text/html; version=3.0.  



<font size=7>PLEASE</font>

...if you are writing an HTML 3.0 browser, indicate that in your Accept: 
headers, so those of us with content-type-negotiating servers can dish 
out HTML 3.0 documents to HTML 3.0 clients and HTML 2.0 docs to HTML 2.0 
clients.  I can *not* underscore how important this is, especially when 
it's soooo easy to do.  Thank you.
