When I said "should" be application/x-httpd-php I may have been
overstating the case. What I should have said is that's what's in

Well I guess it depends on how definitive a guide what apache does is.

While we're on the subject I've just noticed that there is no entry for
*.js files (javascript files). Again, Apache maps that to
application/x-javascript but, from what you've just said, if I set that
in the GNOME Control Centre I'll lose the ability to view them in
Nautilus's text viewer.
