Content Type


  • HTTP Content-Type - this is the preferred terminology, especially as it emphasizes the content aspect.
  • MIME type. This terminology is deprecated.
  • media type. Recommend AGAINST using the term "media type" to refer to content-type as it is overloaded, and often (even more often among web design circles) used to refer to CSS media types.

In microformats, as elsewhere, content-type MAY be used when linking to audio files, PDF files, and other attachments.
