Subject valid XHTML 1.1, Tomcat, text/xml, and @!&* IE
Date Sat, 18 Sep 2004 00:55:34 GMT
With Tomcat 5.5.2, JSF, and JSP, I'm serving up pure, 
standards-compliant XHTML 1.1 that starts out with:

<?xml version="1.0">
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN" 
<html xmlns="">

That works just fine with FireFox, but with IE (the very latest and 
greatest available), I get:

Parameter entity must be defined before it is used. Error processing 
resource '


Apparently, it's because of an IE bug that chokes if the content is 
served as text/xml. See:

How do I tell Tomcat to serve JavaServer Faces files as text/html (or 
application/html+xml, but maybe that's asking for too much) so that IE 
users can access content that's apparently too standards-compliant for 
their browsers?
