Please have a look at http://validator-test.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A% 

The MIME type on sierkbornemann.de is rewritten and set via a  
mod_rewrite rule as follows:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
     RewriteEngine on
     RewriteCond %{HTTP_ACCEPT} application/xhtml\+xml
     RewriteCond %{HTTP_ACCEPT} !application/xhtml\+xml\s*;\s*q=0
     RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} \.html$
     RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} HTTP/1\.1
     RewriteRule .* - [T=application/xhtml+xml;charset=UTF-8]

Controlling the delivery of the webserver via the Firefox browser  
states, that http://sierkbornemann.de is served as "application/xhtml 
+xml". So the rule above is right and does, what it should do.
Why does Validator 0.8 Beta anyway throw out the following warning  

"Conflict between Mime Type and Document Type
The document is being served with the text/html Mime Type which is  
not a registered media type for the XHTML 1.1 Document Type. The  
recommended media type for this document is: application/xhtml+xml
" ?
