This probably applies to all platforms, but I can't test it.

A file with periods in it, for example, a.b.html, is not correctly recognized as
an html file (at least using a file:// URI).

I suspect there is a DOS-ism in Mozilla which assumes everything after the first
period is the file extension, so it looks for ``b.html'' and can't find a MIME
type for it.

What you need to do is look for endings, so you check ``does it end with .html?
yes? then it is text/html'' -- in which case you have to check longer extensions
(such as .tar.gz) before shorter ones (.gz).

Guessing that this falls under URL resolution...
