Actual Results: page is loaded and parsed. Expected Results: page should respect the content type specified in the type attribute. http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/struct/links.html#h-12.1 type = content-type [CI] This attribute gives an advisory hint as to the content type of the content available at the link target address. It allows user agents to opt to use a fallback mechanism rather than fetch the content if they are advised that they will get content in a content type they do not support.Authors who use this attribute take responsibility to manage the risk that it may become inconsistent with the content available at the link target address.For the current list of registered content types, please consult [MIMETYPES].
type is advisory. the HTTP spec says that only in the absense of a Content-Type header can we override advisory mechanisms. INVALID.
