This bug is for tracking 0.9.7 Release Notes changes and additions.
Reopened bug 69174 re bogus information in release notes.
Depends on: 69174
Suggested release note:

-----------------------------------------
Starting with this release, when a standards (strict) mode page links to
an external stylesheet using a <link> element Mozilla will only load
the sheet if it is served with a MIME type of "text/css".  Sheets served
with other MIME types, like text/plain, application/x-pointplus,
etc. will not be loaded.

If you are using Apache as your web server, see
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/mod/mod_mime.html#addtype for an easy way to
configure the MIME type your server sends for CSS files
------------------------------------------------
bz's suggestion should be re-worded for accuracy and a better, more complete
solution.  Contrary to what the apache docs say, (though I am almost positive it
is referring to new un-official types, and not standard types in old installs),
the best solution really is to have this added in the global mime.types file as
it solves the problem for all users on a server, and any future users. 
Therefore I propose the following note as opposed to what is stated in comment #2

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Starting with this release, when a standards (strict) mode page utilizes an
an external stylesheet (via <link>, @import, etc.) Mozilla will only load
the sheet if it is served with a MIME type of "text/css".  Sheets served
with other MIME types, like text/plain, application/x-pointplus,
etc. will not be loaded. (Bug 46225)

If you are using Apache as your web server, you may fix this by adding the
following line to your mime.types file:

text/css    css

If you do not have access to your global mime.types file, you may ask your
system administrator to do it for you.  As a workaround you may use the AddType
directive in your .htaccess file:

AddType  text/css  .css
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Yeah.  I vote for caillon's version.  :)
items up to this point taken care of
and say what movemail is
Not sure if 113070 was already addressed or not - "java filename in release
notes should use ns610 instead of ns600".  Using the ns600 plugin has caused
problems for people, while the ns610 hasn't. Netscape has already changed this,
and I think we should too.
Closing this tracking bug as fixed.
