---------------------------------------

             Summary: lower magic priority xhtml magic priority to ensure emails detected
as message/rfc822
                 Key: TIKA-1771
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-1771
             Project: Tika
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: detector
            Reporter: Jeremy B. Merrill
            Priority: Critical


Emails I have (happy to share if you want) contain XHTML, as one part of a multipart email.
Prior to this pull request, the priority on the application/xhtml+xml magic detector was 50,
equal to the priority on the message/rfc822 detector. Because of the relative position of
the two detectors in tika-mimetypes.xml, the emails were incorrectly detected as XHTML documents.

With this PR, by downgrading the priority of application/xhtml+xml to 40, the more-sensitive
email magic detectors take precedence, causing the emails to be properly detected as message/rfc822.

I have not run this thru the govdocs tester or anything other than my own documents, so, full
disclosure, this could cause false negative xhtml-detections elsewhere.
