      Description

      As noted in JCR-1310, at least in jackrabbit-webapp but possibly also elsewhere we should be using application/xml instead of text/xml as the content type when serving XML over HTTP.

      The text/xml type has been widely criticized because of character encoding issues (see for example http://www.xml.com/pub/a/2004/07/21/dive.html), and there has even been an attempt to officially deprecate text/xml because of this. The application/xml type doesn't suffer from these issues, and is thus a better choice when serving XML.
