  At this point I'll demonstrate my lack of knowledge by asking...
Anyone know a more succinct and clear MIME explanation than the original 
RFC?
  Sure I've seen type="text/javascript", and whatnot.  But I really don't 
understand when and where to use each type.  I basically use what I see 
others using.  ;-)
