I read http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec14.html and wrongly
assumed that, as ratings are a "MAY", order was significant, but nothing
says that.

Ok. Time to go to bed now: I can't reproduce it. I'm sure I typed
www.debian.org (with my own fingers, not copy/paste, hence not the
index.en.html part sneaking around) and I even clicked on the "free" link
and got English.
I know it worked with Firefox but as it didn't worked with Konqueror (and
a message was posted on debian-user-french about problems with Epiphany),
I was surprised.
I really don't know how I messed up my tests with Firefox.
shame, shame, shame...

I meant with Konqueror:
it, es -> Italian
it, en -> English
fr, en -> English
es, fr -> French

Why not always the last one, or the first one, or English?

With Konqueror yes. Firefox is OK.
Setting Languages=fr-fr,fr;q=0.8,en-us;q=0.5,en;q=0.3 in kio_httprc
solves the problem on www.{it,fr,jp,de,}.debian.org (and others, I
guess ;o).

Thanks for the quick answer.

Oh, about the bug report you pointed: the poster says he has only
problems with w.de.d.o, not others. Aren't all sites exact mirrors?
