[resolved] Setting header Content-type and bloginfo('html_type') (3 posts)

    So, being the greedy person I am, I've been trying to get
    Wordpress to support a XHTML+MathML+SVG DOCTYPE, set my mimetype to application/xhtml+xml and so forth.

    I don't mind setting *most* of this in the theme... At least
    the <?xml ...> tags and so forth probably ought to be there,
    I'd prefer to know how bloginfo derives html_type and where
    the php header is generated so I could write a plugin to make that configurable from the admin interface... Any info is appreciated, otherwise I'll keep digging through the code to find the best place to modify this...

    Yes, I know this will break IE. If you know of a cleaner, easier way to take a WP theme and modify it (and WP) to display MathML and SVG within posts, I'd be grateful.

    I appreciate any help anyone can offer.
    Thanks much,
    John

    Well, this plug-in was exactly what I would have written:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/content-negotiation/#post-66

    It gracefully sets the Content-type... Which populates both
    the php header calls *and* bloginfo('html_type').

    Just set the right DOCTYPE from:
    http://www.w3.org/TR/XHTMLplusMathMLplusSVG/#howto

    and validate/clean up your theme.
    Insta MathML & SVG...

    Awesome.
