The W3C HTML Working Group published the XHTML Media Types Note [1]
on 30 April 2002.  This document summarizes the best current practice
for using various Internet media types for serving various XHTML Family
documents.  Although this document is not intended to be a normative
specification, it represents the consensus of the HTML WG.

In summary, 'application/xhtml+xml' SHOULD be used for XHTML Family
documents, and the use of 'text/html' SHOULD be limited to HTML-
compatible XHTML 1.0 documents.  'application/xml' and 'text/xml'
MAY also be used, but whenever appropriate, 'application/xhtml+xml'
SHOULD be used rather than those generic XML media types.
