Ah, ok. I wonder how other WMS server packages encoded wbmp as. I
haven't seen wbmp in other servers from an initial search.
FYI in the 1.1.1 DTD, Format is loosely defined as <!ELEMENT Format
(#PCDATA) >, which can be anything.
You're right; image/vnd.wap.wbmp seems to be the definitive way to
define a wbmp MIME type. I'm not sure of the history of image/wbmp in
MapServer or how it got there, however.
I also wonder on how much image/wbmp is used. Would be interesting to
hear other dev's thoughts here.

not the CITE test, a Dutch standardization body named Geonovum
has created their own testsuite to test for the Dutch WMS profile.
That's the one which is complaining about this MIME type.

To confirm, you're using the OGC CITE WMS 1.1.1
Does the CITE test suite suggest "image/vnd.wap.wbmp" at
I've cc'd Normand here who is more familiar with OGC
CITE for WMS, and
tested 5.0-beta5 successfully

in the Netherlands we have a Dutch WMS profile,
One of the things the test suite complains about
image/wbmp is an invalid mimetype.
Looking a bit on internet it seems the MIME type
image/vnd.wap.wbmp or not?
Is this something that Mapserver is willing to
