11.3. Why does 'File Types' appear in my repository and at the root?

In general you should not add file types to the repository. If a file type setting does not exist for the repository then PureCM will use the root file type settings. You will find that the root contains many file type setting for different types of files.

There are however occassions where you want to make an exception for a repository. For example, you might create a new repository for your web site where you want all 'text/xml' files to use UTF-8 encoding. But you do not want to change all 'text/xml' files in the other repositories to be UTF-8. In this case you can leave the root 'text/xml' file type to be local encoding. You should then create ''text/xml' as a repository file type and set the encoding to be UTF-8. This will override the root settings.
