    What is meant by MIME?

    MIME is Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions is an Internet standard for the format of e-mail. However browsers also uses MIME standard to transmit files. MIME has a header which is added to a beginning of the data. When browser sees such header it shows the data as it would be a file (for example image)
    Some examples of MIME types:
    audio/x-ms-wmp
    image/png
    application/x-shockwave-flash
