Except that it will *not* go away. As Dave mentioned, git has no
concept of mime-type in the repository unlike SVN. The bad files are
commited to SVN and git will simply fetch whatever it is told. It
makes no sense to hack around the problem by making a custom script to
fix broken files when it should just be done at the source, keeping
commit history accurate. Whoever is hosting the website can
fix the issue by setting the appropriate mime-type based on extension
in the web server.
