Content-length:1 for render :nothing => true


I am having trouble rendering truely nothing. Whenever I try:

        format.xml { head :status => 404 } or         format.xml { render :nothing => true }

I get a response with a content-length of 1. Is this normal? I haven't found any resources on the web that talk about this issue. Has anybody run across this?

Cheers, Stephanie

render :nothing => true renders a single space. Rendering truely nothing breaks Safari.

Thanks for the quick reply. I can stop obsessing over it now. Cheers. -Stephanie
