Thanks for the explanation. However I am not sure why mime detection fails. 
The head of the file looks like this:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;charset=iso-8859-1">
<meta http-equiv="Copyright" content="Copyright by Heise Zeitschriften Verlag 
GmbH & Co. KG, Hannover">
: Mac OS X, SpamAssassin

So actually its text/html. Next if I query xdg-mime  for the mimetype of this 
file it says also text/html:

$ xdg-mime query filetype /opt/zeitschriften/ct/html/05/19/220/art.htm

So my question is how exactly beagle determines the mime type of a file when 
trying to index it? This could help me to fix the problem.
