Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 50848] New: Content Negotiation type map file precedence could be clarified
Date Tue, 01 Mar 2011 15:48:47 GMT

           Summary: Content Negotiation type map file precedence could be
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.2.17
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: Documentation

On page
it's written “ a typemap file will take precedence over the filename's
extension, even when Multiviews is on.”
This could be a bit detailed.
1) If there are both foo.html and foo.html.var files and the latter doesn't
mention the former, is foo.html ignored?
2) If Multiviews in on and there is a foo.var file saying
  URI: foo

  URI: foo.en.html
  Content-type: text/html
  Content-language: en

  Content-type: text/html;charset=iso-8859-2
  Content-language: fr, de

and a file, is this one served to a browser requiring Mongolian
language, or is it ignored because not mentioned in foo.var ?
This is a quite important point for websites becoming international. They used
to be of one language and not to use any language extension in file names, like
foo.html . Since "Cool URI don't change" (Tim Berners-Lee), such files should
not be renamed but rather assigned their particular language in the typemap
file. But is it for that required to describe the map of all other variant
files, named with a language extension, like ?
