Two problems with this - first, the the bug  appears to extend to the 
 implementation of mime for input - at least, I can telnet a 
application/x-www-form-urlencoded POST to my VS.Net application, but not 
a text/xml one. Could be operator malfunction, of course, and I agree 
that the WSDL note appears to permit this idiom. But secondly, the the 
parameters for my transaction are in fact for a database query, which  
HTTP 1.1 appears to say [1] is an incorrect use of POST.
