Following is the body of a message from Jim Whitehead to the W3C XML
SIG.  Please do not reply to this message or attribute its authorship
to me.  -- Jon


 FYI, the IETF has issued the document for XML media types registration as
 Internet Informational Request for Comments 2376, and IANA has added
 text/xml and application/xml to the list of registered media types
 maintained at:

 So, text/xml and application/xml are now official Internet media types.

 The RFC itself can be retrieved from:

 Since this document has significant discussion on i18n and security issues,
 perhaps a link to it from the W3C's (and other third-party XML resource
 pages) XML pages would be helpful in achieving compliance with this

 - Jim

 This document proposes two new media subtypes, text/xml and
 application/xml, for use in exchanging network entities which are
 conforming Extensible Markup Language (XML). XML entities are
 currently exchanged via the HyperText Transfer Protocol on the World
 Wide Web, are an integral part of the WebDAV protocol for remote web
 authoring, and are expected to have utility in many domains.

 not specify an Internet standard of any kind.  Distribution of this
 memo is unlimited.

 Requests to be added to or deleted from the IETF distribution list
 should be sent to [log in to unmask]  Requests to be
