Description Ben Harold 2013-07-22 19:39:43 UTC
On line 1057 of the mime.types file, the mime type for a woff font is defined as application/x-font-woff. According to the W3C recommendation (http://www.w3.org/TR/WOFF/#appendix-b) the correct mime type for that type of file is application/font-woff. Loading this type of file will lead to the following console output in Google Chrome 28.0.1500.71: "Resource interpreted as Font but transferred with MIME type application/x-font-woff".

A quick hack to fix this is to add "AddType application/font-woff .woff" somewhere in the Apache configuration, but the default value really should be changed to the correct value.

Fixed in 2.4.26 and a few earlier releases.
