But after changing to 2.2.4 troubles arrived: apache return in response header wrong content-type.
Instead of 'text/vnd.wap.wml' which apache-2.2.3 returns, apache2.2.4 returns 'text/html'.
Content-type 'text/vnd.wap.wml' is set  by my module. But client gets 'text/html'.

I asked something similar a few weeks ago and got a somewhat cryptic answer which won't work
for me because I don't have permission to issue directives on the machine involved which uses
Apache 1.3.37  but. . .

It appears that apache checks for extra filename extensions that are keyed to MIME-like types
that you have to allow for with directives.

I'm still looking for something that will honor my html code lines like

HTTP-equiv: type text/html; charset utf-8

but I haven't found it yet. My web host is about to do a major update and things might soon
be different.
