I know about the technique of content negotiation, and I know the  
apache document, you point me to.

This webpage is served as "application/xhtml+xml" in Firefox.
How do you differ between a browser, which is XHTML-capable and one  
which is not?
To let content-negotiation work -- don't you have to 2 versions of  
the same document, like

http://www.unics.uni-hannover.de/nhtcapri/ruby-annotation.html and  
another document
http://www.unics.uni-hannover.de/nhtcapri/ruby-annotation.xhtml ?

If so, this is *not*, what I intent to do. For some single web  
content or some test or example files like yours, this might a good  
solution, but not for a whole website with a bunch of webpages.
