MIME Types

Web servers send files, including SVG files, to requesting clients, which then try to display those files. For the clients, there must be a mechanism to identify which type of content arrives. The solution for this problem is to use the document's MIME type.

MIME stands for multipurpose Internet mail extensions. Originally, MIME was a definition to distinguish the media type of mail attachments in different formats.
