    2333    other types of English". If no quality values are assigned or multiple
    2334    language tags have been assigned the same quality, the same-weighted
    2335    languages are listed in descending order of priority.

     2336   Note that some recipients treat the order in which language tags are listed
     2337   as an indication of descending priority, particularly for tags that are
     2338   assigned equal quality values (no value is the same as q=1). However, this
     2339   behavior cannot be relied upon. For consistency and to maximize
     2340   interoperability, many user agents assign each language tag a unique
     2341   quality value while also listing them in order of decreasing quality.
