else case in respond_to

Has anybody found out how to deal with unknown respond_to’s?

for example:

respond_to do |format|

format.html # show.rhtml

format.xml { head :status => :method_not_allowed }

format.rss { head :status => :method_not_allowed }

format.atom { head :status => :method_not_allowed }

will deal well with predetermined types (html, xml, rss, atom)

but I’d like to respond appropriately to say ‘format.jpg’.

any thoughts?

Create your own mime types. Topfunky shows you how -- http://nubyonrails.com/articles/2006/12/18/dynamic-graphics-with-rails-1-2

Thanx Rick - but I'm trying to handled edge cases - mime types asked for, but application doesn' t handle. intentionally.

make sense?
