Actually I have a service that does exactly this (http://api.joind.in)! It's a bug; I have a nasty hack in to check the accept header but it is rather stupid. If the code doesn't find something it understands, then it just sends json (since that's *my* first choice). This serves as a timely reminder to sit down and write a decent parser for this, since I haven't come across one I can just use.

I always start with curl for everything, it isn't the world's friendliest tool but it does rule out anything you can't see happening. I recently wrote a post on using curl: http://www.lornajane.net/posts/2008/Curl-Cheat-Sheet
