I'm working on a project where the API requires that I "must set the HTTP user agent to a valid web browser string" like Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)

My questions is, how do I actually "set" the user agent in PHP.  Can it be done with header()?
The actual call to the API looks like $xml = simplexml_load_file($url);
