comment Do Windows mail clients actually care about the MIME type of binary attachments?
@Oded: Exactly, and that's the whole point of the question: Is there a Windows mail client out there in the wild that actually needs the correct MIME type?

Thanks, that's a valid point. I'll leave the question open for now, though, since I'm still curious whether there actually is "an implementation that it doesn't work on".

comment Why it is not possible to Instantiating Types with Wildcards in Java
What do you want to achieve? If you want a linked list that accepts any kind of object, new LinkedList<Object>() is the correct thing to do.

comment What to do when a client asks for something unreasonable (from my point of view)
@StephenOrr: Very good point. Ideally, one should not change the terms of the contract but clarify what was implicitly agreed upon when the contract was made. It will be neither "every browser ever made" nor "only brand-new browsers" -- this will need to be negotiated. In the end, the OP will probably have to support every browser with a significant market share.

comment When and why would we use immutable pointers?
@DaveRook: Nope, in .NET string is a reference type as well! See String class and note that the C# keyword string is just an alias for String!
