That is correct - they do not support XHTML and thus, they do not know
what to do with its MIME type.

text/html is only suitable if you are happy to have your XHTML
processed in a non-XHTML processor (which will not parse it correctly,
will not provide an XML DOM, and so on but may or may not display
something that users can see).
