HttpResponseNotModified should not return Content-Type header

Currently the HttpResponseNotModified class always returns a Content-Type header of text/html. Safari 4 complains about this. The http spec does not say that a 304 response should not have a Content-Type header, but on the other hand it expressly forbids a content body, so a Content-Type header does seem superfluous.
In any case, this can be fixed (and Safari stops complaining) with a simple change to the HttpResponseModified class. A patch is attached.
