Subject: parse_head fails if content is encoded
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 457b
I was trying to implement meta-equiv-refresh handling as described in this ticket, But the refresh header was missing from my responses. This was because I was setting this header "accept_encoding => 'gzip,deflate'", which resulted in an encoded response, thus HTML::HeadParser failed to parse it as html. Can we have an option to automatically decode encoded content if the content_type is 'text/html'?
