RE: [WSG] Help with mobile MIME type always fails test

2010-04-19 Thread Spellacy, Michael
Funny this should come up as I felt like being fussy a couple of weeks
ago. If you happen to be building a site with dotNet (.NET) 2008 you can
override the server MIME type inline by adding the following to the
@Page directive:

contenttype=application/xhtml+xml

This comes in handy if you have a mobile site living in the same
directory as your regular site.

I know this may not help you, Kevin, but maybe it will help
someone...someday. :-)

 I am hoping someone can help me with a MIME for mobile sites problem I
am having.

[WSG] Help with mobile MIME type always fails test

2010-04-16 Thread Kevin Erickson
Hello all,
I am hoping someone can help me with a MIME for mobile sites problem I am
having. I have a page,
http://devel.virginiainteractive.org/demo/portalredesign2010/mobile/mobile_p
ages/, that will not pass the test for mobile MIME type using the
http://mobiready.com/launch.jsp mobile site tester. I have tested other big
brand mobile sites for government and commercial and none seem to pass this
either. Can someone please advise?

Thank you very much,
Kevin

Well, well, well, you learn something new every day eh?

I still couldn't get into a page, but it doesn't matter - I think I
see the problem.

According to dot-mobi: For XHTML-MP, the recommended MIME type is
application/vnd.wap.xhtml+xml or application/xhtml+xml. Unlike HTML,
XHTML-MP should not be served as text/html.

Consequently the mobile site I maintain at: http://m.unimelb.edu.au
also generates a warning. On the other hand, I get the feeling it's
pretty much an 'edge case' as far as failure goes. Serving as
text/html isn't going to break many browsers. I suspect only most
primitive wap only browsers will fail to load the content. If you look
at dot-mobi's little graph, it indicates that such browsers are likely
to be on mobiles greater than 5 years old - pretty minor stuff given
that, if you're anything like our site, more than 95% of your mobile
traffic is going to be from Apple devices.

However, there's nothing wrong with being fussy, so getting you server
to use the correct MIME type will require you either getting into the
apache.conf file or using .htaccess to set the mime type for the file
extensions you're using. This can get tricky and will break things if
you don't know what you're doing. (I don't!)

In my case - using the MySource Matrix CMS, it's just a matter of
adding a line to the beginning of my mobile template, if you are
running a CMS you may have a similar setting. I'm going to leave that
until Monday when I've got time to back out of it if it causes
problems :-)
