Catalyst::View::TT::XHTML - A sub-class of the standard TT view which serves application/xhtml+xml content if the browser accepts it.


    package MyApp::View::XHTML;
    use strict;
    use warnings;
    use base qw/Catalyst::View::TT::XHTML/;



This is a very simple sub-class of Catalyst::View::TT, which sets the response Content-Type to be application/xhtml+xml if the user's browser sends an Accept header indicating that it is willing to process that MIME type.

Changing the Content-Type causes browsers to interpret the page as XML, meaning that the markup must be well formed.

This is useful when you're developing your application, as you know that all pages you view are parsed as XML, so any errors caused by your markup not being well-formed will show up at once.


This module is a very simple demonstration of a consumer of the Catalyst::View::ContentNegotiation::XHTML role.

If your needs are not trivial, or you are not using TT, then using this view is discouraged and deprecated. It is highly recommended that you consume the Catalyst::View::ContentNegotiation::XHTML role yourself, rather than doing silly things with multiple inheritance to use this view in combination with another one.
