  +   Even though the registered MIME type for MIDI files is
  +   <SAMP>audio/midi</SAMP>, some browsers are not set up to recognize it
  +   as such; instead, they look for <SAMP>audio/x-midi</SAMP>.  There are
  +   two things you can do to address this:
  +   </P>
  +   <OL>
  +    <LI>Configure your browser to treat documents of type
  +     <SAMP>audio/midi</SAMP> correctly.  This is the type that Apache
  +     sends by default.  This may not be workable, however, if you have
  +     many client installations to change, or if some or many of the
  +     clients are not under your control.
  +    </LI>
  +    <LI>Instruct Apache to send a different <SAMP>Content-type</SAMP>
  +     header for these files by adding the following line to your server's
  +     configuration files:
  +     <DL>
  +      <DD><CODE>AddType audio/x-midi .mid .midi .kar</CODE>
  +      </DD>
  +     </DL>
  +     <P>
  +     Note that this may break browsers that <EM>do</EM> recognize the
  +     <SAMP>audio/midi</SAMP> MIME type unless they're prepared to also
  +     handle <SAMP>audio/x-midi</SAMP> the same way.
