Multipurpose Internet Mail Extension (MIME) Content-Type headers, the MIME types used therein, and Uniform Resource Identifiers (URIs) are being used, in different contexts, to label entities. A mapping is specified from each kind of label into the other. This makes it possible to express the union of their meaning in either URI or Content-Type syntax.
