FWIW Windows Firefox gives the same "Can't find" error for the first 
URL, but the second one loads, via MPro and UniLaunch, the bit before 
the square brackets, from which the MimeMap file can be found.

So it looks as if NetSurf might be able to solve the second one, if 
someone would like to report the bug, for such it would seem to be.

With best wishes,

Peter.
