 * To get a component that implements nsIDocumentLoaderFactory
 * for a given mimetype, use nsICategoryManager to find an entry
 * with the mimetype as its name in the category "Gecko-Content-Viewers".
 * The value of the entry is the contractid of the component.
 * The component is a service, so use GetService, not CreateInstance to get it.
