Hi all

Am I right in thinking that if I specify a content-type of "text/plain" 
on an html file (with a .htm(l) exension) that the browser should render 
it as plain text and not parse it as html and thus ignore things like 
linked external CSS files?

I've tried to do this with a page using:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1" />

but with no joy - it still gives me HTML in Moz and Opera.  Is this right?
