Null Mime Header

        A couple of days ago I talked about a cgi script that was replying with application/x-perl as its Content-type header.
        I was wrong. Today, I tried a lynx URL -mime_header. Voila, no mime_header.
        How is that possible?
        Is it okay to do such a crap? Or, am I just being fool and I am missing something?
        The url is Try a post action with the following data=someName.
        Should we handle such a thing adding some mime header ... say, like text/plain?
        Anyway, I would like to fix this. Should I look for a null string on the Content-type check up on http.c and then just add a mime type?
