Hey folks.
I'm not on the list, so if you respond please CC me, thanks (and sorry!)

Anyway, I went to validate my XHTML 1.0 page today and was told by the
validator that it could not parse application/xhtml+xml, which according to
RFC 3236 [1] is the official mime type for XHTML.  My webserver is configured
to send documents ending in '.xhtml' as application/xhtml+xml (which I think
is appropriate).

   [1] http://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc3236.txt

This behaviour probably should be corrected... it probably isn't more
complex than adding it to the list of accepted mime types.  If you do decide
to fix this, let me know -- or, alternatively, if you decide not to fix it,
let me know too :)

Thanks in advance for any help you might give, and thanks for providing such
a useful service to the net community.
