as Content-Type "text/plain", since this will be handled more
efficiently in cross-domain requests from the browser. See:
Following the RFC will cost you an additional network round-trip for
every unique URL in your application.
AFAICT, very few JSON services use application/json, so your code
should be tolerant of responses with other Content-Type header values.
I recommend using the web_send library
<http://waterken.sf.net/web_send> for generating your JSON requests.
It already handles things like the Content-Type for you.
