Description: ------------ I would like to see a content negotiation function in PEAR::HTTP that allows a program to list the acceptable mime types it can send and compare it to the user agent's preferences (ala language negotiation). I've created a content negotiation function for HTTP v 1.4.0 that takes either a single content type or a list of types and compares them to the user agent's HTTP Accept header. The best fit is then sent as the content-type header. Test script: --------------- <?php require_once 'HTTP.php'; $mimeType = HTTP::negotiateContentType( array( 'application/xhtml+xml', 'application/xml' ), 'UTF-8', 'application/xml' ); // add the xslt transformation if we're using application/xml if ('application/xml' == $mimeType) { echo <<<_XML_ <?xml version="1.0"?> <?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="xhtml.xsl"?> _XML_; } ?><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1 Strict//EN" ""> <html xmlns="" xml:lang="en"> ... </html> Expected result: ---------------- the script is served via application/xhtml+xml if the user agent supports it, otherwise served as application/xml with a prolog and stylesheet at the top Actual result: -------------- n/a as this is a feature request
