>Description:
when consulting the iana registered mime types list
(ftp://ftp.isi.edu/in-notes/iana/assignments/media-types/media-types)
i found a bunch of vendor tree (vnd) subtypes that are pretty common
but that aren't in the standard mime.types file that ships with
apache 1.3.0.  

for example, there's no listing at all for m$ excel (which should be
application/vnd.ms-excel) and the listing for m$ powerpoint is listed as
application/powerpoint instead of the iana standard
application/vnd.ms-powerpoint type.

unless i'm totally misunderstanding something here, it seems the
mime.types file is a little out of date.

thanks for your time.  say hi to brian and cliff for me.
