[webkit-dev] Mimetype for files loaded from disk?

I've hit an issue with the wx port where HTML files that use @import
url("file.css") will not load when the HTML and CSS file are on disk
rather than loaded via the web. After tracking it down, I found that I
could resolve the issue by having CURL set the file type for
m_response to "application/x-unknown-content-type", which enables the
CachedCSSStyleSheet::canUseSheet test to pass, but I'm not sure this
is the right approach.
Another wrinkle to this issue is that this problem doesn't appear on
the Windows wx port, only Linux/Mac. I'm fairly certain this
discrepancy is not due to wx code, and so I was wondering how other
ports (Apple's and otherwise) handle this issue. Is there some
alternative approach to setting the mimetype explicitly, or is there
some extension <-> mimetype mapping being used in some cases?
