but why? it's still "text/html"

The XHTML 1.1 spec advises the use of the following MIME types:
Unfortunately, all versions of Internet Explorer on all platforms are unable to properly cope with these MIME types. Now, IE accounts for 90%+ of my traffic...
So, instead of serving this site up with different MIME type flavors - text/html to legacy browsers (Konqueror, Netscape 4, Opera, all versions of IE on all platforms), and application/xhtml+xml to Mozilla and it's derivatives - I decided to take the easy, 'no harm no foul' route until a specific MIME is 'mandated'.
Thanks for noticing and keeping me honest, though. ;)
