World of LOLcraft

Out of the tens of thousands of sites processed by the LOLinator, only one popular request stubbornly resisted tampering: World of Warcraft. It’s a bit of an oddity that uses a text/xml MIME type, different pages for different browsers, iffy markup and client-side XSLT (note to Blizzard: web dev really doesn’t have to be that complicated).

Eventually I got sick of ardent MMORPGers clogging up the error log, so I’ve tweaked my code to accept text/xml and send headers that coax the WoW site into returning something vaguely resembling XHTML. Now it can haz teh kittehs.
