Technical Committee Policies and Procedures: MIME Media Types for GML

This document provides guidance on GML MIME type specification. An Internet media type, originally called a MIME type after Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions and sometimes a Content-type after the name of a header in several protocols whose value is such a type, is a two-part identifier for file formats on the Internet. The identifiers were originally defined in RFC 2046 for use in e-mail sent through SMTP , but their use has expanded to other protocols such as HTTP , RTP and SIP .
