           Summary: validator not sending out reasonable Accept header?
           Product: Validator
           Version: 0.7.0
          Platform: Other
               URL: http://giftfile.org/
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: check
        AssignedTo: link@pobox.com
        ReportedBy: john@neggie.net
         QAContact: www-validator-cvs@w3.org


The validator fails on <http://giftfile.org/>, saying it doesn't know how to 
process an xml+rss file.  This site has both an index.html file and an 
index.rss file, but to my knowledge content negotiation is disabled for 
the .rss file (due to IE issues).  In any case, the validator should probably 
be putting some weight on text/html and application/xhtml+xml MIME types via 
the Accept header, as if it were an HTML browser.
