Standard MIME types

This is a copy of the mime.types file distributed with the Apache web server. The first word of each line (including the slash) is a valid MIME type. All of the following words on each line are file extentions that the server will map to the given MIME type.

Any of these types may be specified on a CGI's Content-type: header line. The most common would be, for example,

Content-type: text/html
