.xhtml properly and stay compatible with Internet Explorer
Internet Explorer often won’t show pages using the
.xhtml extension and offers users a download dialog instead. Since
.xhtml extensions are essential to mobile phones I went looking for a solution. You should add the following to either your
.htaccess (if you don’t have access to the former) file:
AddType text/html .xhtml DirectoryIndex index.xhtml
Isn’t it great? Many thanks to the guys over at the
