------- Comment #1 from ot@w3.org  2007-12-25 23:32 -------
please look at Bug 785. Basically:
* a user agent like the validator does not need to send an accept header
* with the current spec, it's wrong to send xhtml1.1 as text/html (why not use
xhtml 1.0?)
* you should fix your accept hack to server application/xhtml+xml by default,
and send text/html only to agents that send an accept not containing this media
type
* if for testing purposes you need the validator to send accept headers, see 
   http://validator.w3.org/docs/users.html#option-accept
