Hi Juan Miguel,

you are just changing the default behaviour of Wget. This is not backward 

To solve the issue, there are other options:

1. Introduce a new command line option which changes Wget's behaviour in your 
sense. Then inspect the file to see if it likely contains HTML (e.g. checking 
the first kbyte for some keywords).

2. Introduce a 'database' (maybe a flat file), where information from the 
server is saved together with the filename. -nc could lookup the Content-Type 
(and other information) from here. And voila.

Regards, Tim
