The MIME type is determined through HTTP. Browsers always ignored that part
of "http-equiv".

IE 6 gives a you a download dialog instead of rendered HTML with the correct
MIME type. Some people claim that you should either serve correct MIME type or
not use XHTML at all. Well, I like the possibility to process HTML with XSLT.

I guess you mean ">". Moving that character to the next line should do.

Of course not.

Difficult question. Adding every single contributor by name could get excessively long.

Well, I do prefer the GPL. But then I just want my changes to get included and will
agree to any reasonable license. For example the maintainers of Cleanfeed (which is
under Artistic License) would have to reject contributions under GPL, since that
would make the whole of Cleanfeed GPL.
