text_javascript versus application_javascript

P: n/a
Hi all,

On the rfc4329 it says that the Internet Media Type text/javascript is now
obsolete in favor
of application/javascript.
But the majority of people keeps using text/javascript and even some
HTML Editors, like Dreamweaver, default to this Internet Media Type.
I've done some experiments with Internet Explorer 7, and sometimes
it seems it doesn't recognize application/javascript.
Does anybody have any problems using application/javascript with Internet
Explorer 7?

Best Regards

Stick with text/javascript. application/javascript is the proposed type,
and its compatibility is a long way off.

If you stay with text/javascript, you're going to be fine.

Search the group archives for "application/javascript" and you'll get a
full depth and breadth of discussion on the topic. No reason to have the
same old discussion again, I think.

All the best,
~A!
