Subject Javascript mime type
Date Thu, 24 Jan 2013 21:01:00 GMT

In the file '$FORREST_HOME/main/webapp/resources.xmap' there's the following match:

      <map:match pattern="**skin/**.js">
        <map:read src="{lm:skin.js.{2}}" mime-type="application/x-javascript" />

x-javascript looks kind of strange and old. This is what wikipedia has to say about javascript
mime type (

«• application/javascript: ECMAScript/JavaScript; Defined in RFC 4329 (equivalent to application/ecmascript
but with looser processing rules) It is not accepted in IE 8 or earlier - text/javascript
is accepted but it is defined as obsolete in RFC 4329. The "type" attribute of the <script>
tag inHTML5 is optional. In practice, ***omitting the media type of JavaScript programs is
the most interoperable solution,*** since all browsers have always assumed the correct default
even before HTML5.»

(my emphasis)

If there are no objections, I will just remove the mime type from that (and similar) match(es).
