Description

(see also ticket #5887)
Actually qgis always call an identify on WMS using
INFO_FORMAT=text/plain
An useful enhanced should be add a properties at wms-layer-level settable from user to choose the format for the getfeatureinfo request.
The available values should be:

text/plain
text/xml
text/html

After some tests on getFeatureInfo.
Another good and useful format is GML.

It is useful because it allow to retrieve the geometry in a standard mode.

Also seem all the wms servers allow a GML output.

this is an example for an output GML.

Please notice it return a multipart http response where the first part is the XSD schema and the second part is the GML data.

So with an unique response it return the two files.
