Please note that Amaya is primarily an editor, which can also be used
as a browser.  Amaya 6.0 and later allows you to publish new XHTML
documents with the media type 'application/xhtml+xml' when you edit
documents over HTTP, and also 'application/xml' or 'text/xml' may be
chosen if necessary.  And Amaya can browse XHTML documents served with
those media types.

As far as Amaya is concerned, it interprets XHTML documents served as
'application/xhtml+xml' since version 4.3, which was released on 28
February 2001 - more than a year ago.  So you don't have to use
'text/html' to let Amaya process XHTML documents.
