Description Christophe Fergeau 2004-02-17 03:00:25 UTC
Currently, the mime type for xbel files is
<mime-type type="application/xbell">
(notice the two 'l' at the end)
It should either be application/xbel or application /x-xbel
(I dunno which one of the two though :(
Comment 1 Marco Pesenti Gritti 2004-02-28 16:51:35 UTC
The only place where application/xbel is used seem to be gnome-mime-data. klibs
are using application/x-xbel.
From gnome-mime-data changelog:

2002-05-28  Ricardo Fernández Pascual  <ric@users.sourceforge.net>
        * gnome-vfs-mime-magic
        * gnome-vfs.keys.in
        * gnome-vfs.mime: Added entries for xbel, netscape and mozilla
        bookmarks formats. (Modified by Bastien Nocera <hadess@hadess.net>,
        we should use x- prefixes for non IANA mime-types)

Bastien corrected netscape/mozilla types but not xbel, I couldnt find any trace
of in the IANA mime list though.
