If you want it to be rendered by existing browsers serve it as HTML, otherwise
"to be resolved"

From: http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/WD-xhtml1-19991124

"5.1 Internet Media Type
As of the publication of this recommendation, the general recommended MIME
labeling for XML-based applications has yet to be resolved.
However, XHTML Documents which follow the guidelines set forth in Appendix
C, "HTML Compatibility Guidelines" may be labeled with the Internet Media
Type "text/html", as they are compatible with most HTML browsers. This
document makes no recommendation about MIME labeling of other XHTML
documents."
