Hi,

a couple of service controllers return XML to an HTML request. This is
usually done as

respond_to do |format|
format.html { render :xml => ... } #return xml only
...
end

As coded above, the HTTP reply header reports "text/html" with the
reply body containing XML.
This is wrong and not RESTful (can we say RESTless ? ;-))

Um, and what's the correct implementation? Which modules handle that
correctly?
(i.e. where can I steal the correct code? :-))

Just remove the "format.html" line for now.

Firefox will happily display XML then.

Or provide a real HTML reply (e.g. for debugging purposes)
