mime type and wordpress header (2 posts)

    If specifying the Content-Type is important... and WordPress uses xhtml... why would the header.php file contain this:

    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="<?php bloginfo('html_type'); ?>; charset=<?php bloginfo('charset'); ?>" />

    When generates this:

    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />

    if it should have or generate this:

    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" value="application/xhtml+xml" />

    Anyone? I am testing my site on the mobiforge.com site and I have the mobile web pack installed and activated... I get good results, with a couple of exceptions, this being one.

    I'm trying hard to understand it and get into mobile web design, so any enlightenment is greatly appreciated, thanks!

    WordPress defaults to xhtml 1.0 transitional. Information about this standard, specifically to content type, can be found here:
