You seem to be under the mistaken impression that form post content is
MIME. It is not. It looks kinda like it should be, and maybe it's even
specified to be [rfc2388], but actually treating it as MIME is a
rather critical error. RFC2388 is just wrong, don't believe a thing it
At this point, calling it a bug in any particular browser is rather
foolish, since none of them actually write proper MIME output. It
should really be considered a bug in the RFC, instead.
