I have checked with IE 6, Opera 8.52, Firefox (Iceweasel 3.0.1), 
Konqueror 3.5.9, and they do not set the Content-Length.

They also never use multipart/mixed when there are multiple file fields 
with the same name, as required(?) by HTML 4.2 spec and rfc 2388.

And, finally, they don't set the Content-Type (with the charset 
parameter) for the normal input fields.
