That is most definitely a problem.  For successful requests (which the
200 signifies), the second line is supposed to contain the content-type.

So, I just tried the URL and it turns out that the IFAC web server is
not setting the content-type.  I'm guessing that web browsers default
the content-type to text/html when the content-type is not set.  I'll
work up a patch to handle this case and post it soon (hopefully today,
but if things get crazy, it might not be until next week).
