What is a 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.

Examples of MIME types are "text/html" for HTML pages, and "text/css" for Cascading Style Sheets .
