Internet Media Type

Name: Internet Media Type

SubclassOf: []()

Description: Internet Media Type formerly MIME (Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions) types describe the media type of content either in email or served by web servers or web applications and are intended to help guide a web browser in how the content is to be processed and displayed. Not all formats have an associated MIME type, but this is specified where it is known. MIME is an acronym for Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions, and is written to allow MIME to be extended in certain ways, without having to revise the standard. MIME types consist of a standardised system of identifiers consisting of a type and a sub-type, separated by a slash, such as text/html. This provides a procedure for maintaining and extending these sets of values by registering them with the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority.
