Accept-Post response HTTP header advertises which media types are accepted by the server for HTTP post requests.
Accept-Post in response to any method means that
POST is allowed on the requested resource (any document/media format in the header further indicates that the document format is allowed).
For example, a server receiving a
POST request with an unsupported media type could reply with
Unsupported Media Type and an
Accept-Post header referencing one or more supported media types.
An IANA registry maintains a complete list of official content encodings.

Accept-Postheader specifies a media range in the same way as
Accept-Language, except that it has no notion of preference (i.e. "accept-params" or "q" arguments are not significant).
Accept-Post: application/example, text/example Accept-Post: image/webp Accept-Post: */*

Browser compatibility is not relevant for this header (header is sent by server, and the specification does not define client behaviour).
