MIME Application Info

MIME Application/vnd.wap.xhtml xml

Pages Not displaying properly?

Any MIME subtype that begins with the “vnd” prefix is a vendor specific subtype. In the case of mime application/vnd.wap.xhtml xml, this mime type is specified by the Open Mobile Alliance which was formerly known as the WAP Forum (hence the WAP identifier in the subtype’s name) for XHTML MP (Mobile Profile) documents intended for WAP browsers.

WAP browsers are Wireless Application Protocol browsers designed to deliver content on mobile phones. When a WAP browser encounters mime application/vnd.wap.xhtml xml, it understands that the content type is XHTML MP and is then able to handle the content appropriately. XHTML MP is the markup language specified in the mobile services specification known as WAP 2.0. The Open Mobile Alliance specifies the mime application/vnd.wap.xhtml xml as a MIME type for XHTML MP.

Some WAP browsers specifically require the use of mime application/vnd.wap.xhtml xml in order to properly render the pages. In addition to mime application/vnd.wap.xhtml xml, the application/xhtml+xml and text/html MIME types are also used by some programmers. Since some traditional Web browsers do not recognize the application/vnd.wap.xhtml xml mime type, using these alternatives allow for viewing the content on other browsers, though it may not be rendered as expected.
