transclude should show something

Issue #273 wontfix

created an issue

Currently some (which?) contenttypes can't be shown, only downloaded.

For a transclusion, one expects the item to be shown and not just a download link for it.

For items that can't be rendered, we could add a placeholder, like the icon we use on index view.

For audio and video items supported by html5, appropriate tags should be used that show the player.

    It would seem that the author of the item that includes a transclusion for an item of unknown content type should have the responsibility to place an icon before or after the transclusion if that is wanted.

    Items of unknown content on the index page will likely show the icon for the CSS class "moin-mime-application". So rather than defaulting to what is likely to be an unhelpful icon, we should just let the author of the item to place (or not) an icon of his choice.
