Mime type for CommonMark?


#1

People on Stack overflow say that text/x-markdown is de-facto a mime type for markdown. As CommonMark tries to be more standardised than markdown, is there/will there be any “official” mime type for CommonMark content?

It would certainly be a possibility, but any moves in this direction
would be premature until the spec hits 1.0.

There’s an old discussion about this here.

Bottom line is, yes, text/x-markdown is the current de-facto standard, some people are trying to make text/markdown happen.
