Thanks for the nice tip.

It seems like this checking is something you would do on the 
server---Tomcat. You could probably get it done somewhere in the 
internals of the JavaServer Faces implementation, too.

I found <mime-mapping> in web.xml and tried setting the "faces" 
extension to return text/html. No luck. Then I tried the "jsp" 
extension. No luck there, either. The _Java™ Servlet Specification
Version 2.4_ is no help. Neither is _Professional Apache Tomcat 5_.

Can Tomcat handle this?

Is there something I can put in my JSF page to handle this? Rather than 
placing hacks throughout my pages, though, I'd like to just tell Tomcat 
to serve text/html for now---how do I do that?
