An Internet media type, previously called MIME type and sometimes called Content-type is an identifier for file formats on the Internet.


An Internet media type consists of two parts: a type name and a subtype name. The type name is one of nine possible categories for a file format. The subtype specifies the file format itself. They form an Internet media type in the syntax "type/subtype". Subtypes beginning with "vnd." are vendor-specific, while those with "prs." are personal. Types or subtypes beginning with "x-" are unregistered with IANA. File formats derived from a standard or another file format (for example, Extensible Markup Language) comes with plus signs ("+", for example, some subtype names end with "+xml", which signifies that the format is an XML format).
