What is the MIME type and how do I use it?

MIME (Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions) type is a standard way of describing a data type in the body of an HTTP message or email. The MIME type is passed in the Content-Type header. For example, the Content-Type: text/html header tells the browser that it received an HTML page. Based on this MIME type header, the browser can parse and display the received HTML page correctly. Click Send to run and see the MIME type results.
