No client is reading the web.config file from an asp.net web site.
This is an internal configuration file which typically contains
database connection strings and other sensitive information.

Different content may be sent to the client depending on client
capabilities. If ASP.NET determines that the client is unknown I
recall that it will try to downgrade the output (correct me if I am
wrong). This behavior can be changed.
