When you download a file with a MIME type with a registered helper app, the "Downloading file" dialog that prompts you to select how you want the file opened will give the following prompt: You have chosen to download a file of type "WinZip File" [application/x-zip-compressed] from ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/night/latest-trunk/ This is rather ugly. Better would be to use round brackets: You have chosen to download a file of type "WinZip File" (application/x-zip-compressed) from ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/night/latest-trunk/

cc:ing German; this is implemented as spec'd, is using () really prettier? I don't much care myself, but I hate to "fix" this and then get another bug tomorrow from German saying that he misses the cute little square brackets...
bill: Agreed! I don't want to put you in the middle here. :-) german: Was your spec's use of square brackets indeed intentional?
spam: over to File Handling.

german is no longer working on Mozilla. mpt?
Yes, round brackets, please!
reassigning to marlon so we can get his opinion sometime in the near future (today? tomorrow? :P). That way we can know we're avoiding a big bracket/paren war.

Is this still relevant? We now put no brackets at all around the type.
