Also, "text/html" is mentionned in at least two other documents:

    On Thu, 01 Aug 2002 15:12:27 GMT
    In XHTML Media Types
    At http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/NOTE-xhtml-media-types-20020801/#text-html

    [long section cut]

AND

    On Thu, 01 Aug 2002 13:56:02 GMT
    In XHTML 1.0: The Extensible HyperText Markup Language (Second Edition)
    At http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/#media

    5.1. Internet Media Type

    XHTML Documents which follow the guidelines set 
    forth in Appendix C, "HTML Compatibility 
    Guidelines" may be labeled with the Internet Media 
    Type "text/html" [RFC2854], as they are compatible 
    with most HTML browsers. Those documents, and any 
    other document conforming to this specification, 
    may also be labeled with the Internet Media Type 
    "application/xhtml+xml" as defined in [RFC3236]. 
    For further information on using media types with 
    XHTML, see the informative note [XHTMLMIME].
