SIG.  Please do not reply to this message or attribute its authorship
to me.  -- Jon


 FYI, the IETF has issued the document for XML media types registration as
 Internet Informational Request for Comments 2376, and IANA has added
 text/xml and application/xml to the list of registered media types
 maintained at:


 So, text/xml and application/xml are now official Internet media types.

 The RFC itself can be retrieved from:


 Since this document has significant discussion on i18n and security issues,
 perhaps a link to it from the W3C's (and other third-party XML resource
 pages) XML pages would be helpful in achieving compliance with this
