I've tried changing one of my sites to use this mime type, only to find that not even version 6 of IE could handle it--it wanted to download the pages instead of displaying them.

Have you any word on when Microsoft will support this mime type in IE?

(The latest versions of Mozilla/Netscape and Opera handle it fine.)
