I keep pages running on an apache 1.3 browser using content negotiation under the above uri. the problem is, I cannot use this configuration with mozilla 1.0 as browser, as regardless of the language and font choice, the server responds to requests to e.g. the above uri with a 406 Not Acceptable. This is due to the fact, that html text is not accepted with full consent, which looks more politically correct than senseful on today's web. I had rather have an oppertunity to turn the xml-preference feature off, as content negotiation is a per-se very nice feature. Unfortunately, I am not currently in the position to port the above site to Apache 2.0, and I do not know whether this would change things. I'd anyway be interested in an answer, if anyone knows.
what version of apache 1.3 are you using? a stock apache distribution shouldn't have any trouble with mozilla's Accept header.
user_pref("network.http.accept.default", "text/xml,application/xml,application/xhtml+xml,text/html;q=1.0,text/plain;q=0.8,video/x-mng,image/png,image/jpeg,image/gif;q=0.2,text/css,*/*;q=0.1"); will do what you want.
Yeah, but the mozilla default should be ok.. Can you give a test url which shows this problem?
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.1b) Gecko/2002090311 This is weird. If I access URL above directly, I get the failure of the original report. If I use web-sniffer, I get this: http://webtools.mozilla.org/web-sniffer/view.cgi?url=http%3A%2F%2Fls2-www.cs.uni-dortmund.de%2F%7Etinnefeld%2F&verbose=on So there is some issue here. Who is responsible for web-sniffer anyways, there is some suggestion I'd like to make. pi

pi: i don't know who "owns" the websniffer these days. you might want to ask on #mozilla. with build 2003022308 under windows, i don't see a 406 response code. maybe the site changed? marking WORKSFORME.

yeah, it looks like the server was upgraded to "Apache/2.0.44"
I can confirm that with 1.3b release Linux I don't have a problem with the original URL. Also the websniffer gives 200. pi
