Subject [Bug 55293] New: Incorrect default MIME type for .woff fonts
Date Mon, 22 Jul 2013 19:39:43 GMT

            Bug ID: 55293
           Summary: Incorrect default MIME type for .woff fonts
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.4.4
          Hardware: Macintosh
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: mod_mime
          Assignee: bugs@httpd.apache.org
          Reporter: benharold@mac.com

On line 1057 of the mime.types file, the mime type for a woff font is defined
as application/x-font-woff. According to the W3C recommendation
(http://www.w3.org/TR/WOFF/#appendix-b) the correct mime type for that type of
file is application/font-woff. Loading this type of file will lead to the
following console output in Google Chrome 28.0.1500.71: "Resource interpreted
as Font but transferred with MIME type application/x-font-woff".

A quick hack to fix this is to add "AddType application/font-woff .woff"
somewhere in the Apache configuration, but the default value really should be
changed to the correct value.
