List of MIME types

What is MIME type ?

MIME stands for Multi-purpose Internet Mail Extensions. MIME types form a standard way of classifying file types on the Internet. Internet programs such as Web servers and browsers all have a list of MIME types, so that they can transfer files of the same type in the same way, no matter what operating system they are working in.

A MIME type has two parts: a type and a subtype. They are separated by a slash (/). For example, the MIME type for Microsoft Word files is applicationand the subtype is msword. Together, the complete MIME type is application/msword.

If we are writing a pdf type response from a asp.net web application then we need the MIME content-types of pdf document. The following is the list of MIME content-types of commonly used along with their file extension.
