VoiceXML[edit]

VoiceXML not supported by Presto? Isn't that XML+V or whatever Opera 8 has? Should this be noted in table?

Sorry. I've forgotton to mark it as yes. I know it supports VoiceXML. Fixed. --minghong 05:16, 5 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Safari (WebCore) doesn't like   for text/xml[edit]

When an XHTML document is served with text/xml Safari will complain if it contains an   entity, giving an error message at the top of the page for each   entity (probably others not specifically defined in XML), so I'd say it parses it as XML without checking the doctype and then renders it as XHTML. ~~StarkRG

What about application/xml? And what about the latest version (2.0)? --minghong 05:16, 5 Jun 2005 (UTC)
I now updated according to result in W3C test. Please do update if you have access to latest versions of the browsers. --minghong 06:02, 5 Jun 2005 (UTC)

KHTML and application/xhtml+xml[edit]

As the table says, KHTML treats application/xhtml+xml as HTML, not as XHTML. KHTML uses its tag soup parser. This is surely a serious flaw. But why is the table cell coloured green? I think it should be yellow. -- molily 15:07, 21 February 2006 (UTC)


Trident and XHTML 1.1 as application/xml[edit]

This article says it talks about XHTML 1.1 and that Trident renders XHTML 1.1 as XML when the MIME type is application/xml or text/xml. However it has an XML processor bug that prevents XHTML 1.1 from being rendered except when served as text/html. Note that W3C tests are using XHTML 1.0 Strict as the DOCTYPE. My opinion is that either the article should state that it talks about XHTML 1.0 Strict or note that Trident doesn't support XHTML 1.1 when it's served as application/xml or text/xml --194.19.227.253 13:21, 20 May 2006 (UTC)

I have just tested this myself and IE really seems to parse the DTD. You're correct, I agree. Grey 23:36, 27 August 2006 (UTC)

xhtml on trident/IE[edit]

what does the media type things mean? this should be clarified for people not xhtml savvy. does this mean that an xhtml doc will not run on trident/IE perfectly? or only w/ applications that are used to make xhtml docs? 70.111.224.252 14:16, 26 August 2006 (UTC)

To be really useful, XHTML must be served with an XHTML/XML media type (i.e. if you want to include MathML or SVG content directly). IE does treat XHTML as XML, though, so most things you are common with won't work. E.g. <title/>, <meta/>, <link/>, <style/>, <script/>,... tags fulfill no useful function (as far as I can tell, at least). Plus, you will only see an XML tree (i.e. instead of a rendered page) if you don't provide a XML style-sheet at the beginning of your page.
Serving up XHTML as "text/html" leaves you without any benefits of XHTML, so you could as well use HTML. Grey 00:35, 28 August 2006 (UTC)

opera with userJS = partly MathML support[edit]

I think it should be mentioned in the article that a userJS exists for opera, that allows some MathML stuff. The script can be found here: http://xml-maiden.com/userjs/mathml/ but what is your oppinion? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 81.189.29.181 (talk) 11:08, 24 January 2007 (UTC).

ruby ?[edit]

<ruby> is a specification of XHTML 1.1. Why isn't it in the list HTML or XHTML, only in HTML5 ? Zéfling (talk) 23:04, 22 January 2010 (UTC)
