Subject [users@httpd] mod_negotiation: prefer-type cookie? (as prefer-language)
Date Mon, 03 Mar 2008 06:05:39 GMT

Taken from the example were the Accept-Language (and it qualifiers) HTTP 
header is overridden by a cookie set in the user’s browser; from :
SetEnvIf Cookie "lang=(.+)" prefer-language=$1 Header append Vary cookie

But can this be done with the Accept HTTP header as well? Is there an 
environmental variable that can be used to override the default 
negotiation method for the Content-Type as well? I had visioned something 
like the below, but I have not found anything in the documentation.
SetEnvIf Cookie "type=(.+)" prefer-type=$1 Header append Vary cookie

If this is an undocumented or unsupported feature… How can I achieve the 
same result using other approaches? Basically I want to offer the user a 
way to override the default content negotiation method. Like with the 
prefer-language option.
