I'm not really sure, I'm not a specialist of Lynx (I prefer "www" :-)) but
apparently, without mailcap Lynx is like www :
* when it run in an xterm it send "image/gif", "application/postscript" ...
* otherwise it don't send these header lines.
I want to know :
1) Why Lynx, Mosaic, Netscape, www ... send always a field "Accept:
image/gif" in the first request, even if the user don't want receive a GIF
2) why, in the example of "MGET", in the first request there is only
"text/html; text/plain" and then a request with "image/gif". For me there
is no negociation between the server and the client. Perhaps it's better to
make the choice of Chimera and send "Accept: */*"
3) why Netscape never send a field "Accept: application/postscript" even
if the user want receive a PostScript document.
I've the same problem, with the same CGI script, it can send a PostScript
document or a document HTML. This script must send systematically a
PostScript document or it must check the header line ?
p.s. it's more important, for me, to receive a header line
"Accept-Language", and this is also an user choice (I want receive french
