mod_rewrite-free MIME type switcheroo
I made another attempt at correcting my MIME type situation (I was serving XHTML 1.1 with a MIME type of
text/html, which is wrong). There is a mod_rewrite based solution out there, but mod_rewrite is a sledgehammer, and I thought this should be possible with a lighter tool. Indeed it is:
<FilesMatch "\.s?x?html$"> SetEnvIf Accept application/xhtml\+xml ACCEPT_XHTML SetEnvIf Accept application/xhtml\+xml\s*;\s*q=0 !ACCEPT_XHTML SetEnvIf Request_Protocol HTTP/(0\.|1\.0) !ACCEPT_XHTML Header set Content-Type "application/xhtml+xml; charset=iso-8859-15" env=ACCEPT_XHTML </FilesMatch>
Unfortunately I currently can’t use this for lack of mod_headers on this server.
Right now, I’m serving my XHTML files as
application/xhtml+xml to everyone, including Internet Explorer, which breaks with this MIME type. Sigh.
