Excerpt
Introduction: HTTP allows web site authors to put multiple versions of the same information under a single URI. Each of these versions is called a `variant'. Transparent content negotiation is an extensible negotiation mechanism for automatically and efficiently retrieving the best variant when a GET or HEAD request is made. This enables the smooth deployment of new web data formats and markup tags. This specification defines transparent content negotiation as an extension on top of the HTTP/1.1 protocol [1]. However, use of this extension does not require use of HTTP/1.1: transparent content negotiation can also be done if some or all of the parties are HTTP/1.0 [2] systems.
