Hi Oliver,

Oliver said:
According to
only "text/xml" comes into question.

The question arose because IE with MSXML (March 15, 2000) requires
"text/xsl", otherwise the referenced stylesheet isn't used.

Is that a bug (resp. a MS feature) ?

Didier replies:
No its not. The MIME type for XSLT is "text/xsl", the MIME type for DSSSL is
"text/dsssl" and the MIME type for CSS is "text/css".

Now, the question is: Does these MIME types are well registered to IANA? I
do not know. If not, it is then a practice shared by the XML community to
use these MIME types for style sheets.
