Hello everyone,

I was wondering if XForms had a Content-Type associated to it such as 
application/xforms+xml. I have not seen any on the IANA website nor 
anywhere else. Please forgive me if I haven't looked carefully enough.

I'm asking that because I often setup my web application to use Content 
negotiation and serve content based on what the UA says it supports. For 
instance Firefox says it accepts application/xhtml+xml when Internet 
Explorer does not. I serve XHTML in the first case and HTML otherwise.

In the case of XForms, if the UA does not support XForms natively or via 
an extension, I would serve my XForms document through XHTML and I would 
add a call to FormFaces (the Javascript XForms implementation as you all 
know). Basically, I would like to use the native XForms implementation 
if there and FormFaces otherwise.

Maybe this does not make much sense though :)
