There are some live Web sites that have flash content in the html page along with the TYPE attribute and the server sends this flash content with a different MIME type (for example, text/plain). This is not being displayed in the S60 browser since the server sends a different MIME type than the actual content type.

The MIME type of the file that is not supported by any application is queried from the server, not from the TYPE attribute.
