        The MIME type of the object is passed to the functions in HTFWriter.c
and the model code to which I referred uses it.  In the case of an ftp
'd'ownload, for which the server does not indicate the MIME type and the
object may have defaulted to text/plain due to the absence of a suffix map,
the user can be prompted about whether to do a "flip".

        I suggest you henceforth communicate with the current Hon Kays of
like kind, do not post any more messages directed to me, and simply delete
any messages you see from me.
