This is a request to register the text/cache-manifest media type by
reference to the HTML5 specification:


Type name:

Subtype name:

Required parameters:
  No parameters

Optional parameters:
  No parameters

Encoding considerations:
  8bit (always UTF-8)

Security considerations:
  Cache manifests themselves pose no immediate risk unless sensitive
  information is included within the manifest. Implementations, however,
  are required to follow specific rules when populating a cache based on a
  cache manifest, to ensure that certain origin-based restrictions are
  honored.  Failure to correctly implement these rules can result in
  information leakage, cross-site scripting attacks, and the like.

Interoperability considerations:
  Rules for processing both conforming and non-conforming content are
  defined in the HTML5 specification.

Published specification:
  The HTML5 specification is the relevant specification.

Applications that use this media type:
  Web browsers.

Additional information:
  Magic number(s):
    Cache manifests begin with the string "CACHE MANIFEST", followed by
    either a U+0020 SPACE character, a "tab" (U+0009) character, a "LF"
    (U+000A) character, or a "CR" (U+000D) character.
  File extension(s):

  Macintosh file type code(s):
    No specific Macintosh file type codes are recommended for this type.

Person & email address to contact for further information:
  Michael[tm] Smith <mike@w3.org>

Intended usage:

Restrictions on usage:
  No restrictions apply.

Change controller:

Fragment identifiers have no meaning with text/cache-manifest resources.
