cgi and headers


hi there...

i'm starting to work with python cgi scripts using ajax.
one problem i have is that the cgi module doesn;t do (apparently) anything
without the -- print "Content-type: text/html\n" -- line in the script.

the issue is that the output of the script has to be an xml file and not
an html. it's not really a problem for any normal browser but the retarded
explorer thing doesn;t process the xml unless it gets back the xml header.

so my scripts work fine on mozilla but not in explorer because of the
missing xml header.

what would be the correct solution for this?

thanks....
