#1244 epub3: wrong mimetype format

output: ePub
ePub (12)

Hello !

the mimetype file for epub3 is invalide.
It contains :
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>application/epub+zip
it should be only : application/epub+zip

thanks and regards

    This appears to be an issue only with the Xalan processor, which cannot
    produce output with method="text", which is needed for the css file. Try
    using Saxon or xsltproc.

    Because the Xalan processor does not properly support output method="text", it cannot produce valid epub3 output. So now the stylesheet checks to see if the processor is Xalan and exits if it is.
