The World Wide Web Consortium has issued the Extensible Markup Language (XML) 1.0 [XML] and Extensible Markup Language (XML) 1.1 [XML1.1] specifications. To enable the exchange of XML network entities, this specification standardizes three media types (application/xml, application/xml-external-parsed-entity, and application/xml-dtd), two aliases (text/xml and text/xml-external- parsed-entity), and a naming convention for identifying XML-based MIME media types (using '+xml').

                             XML Media Types


   This specification standardizes three media types -- application/xml,    application/xml-external-parsed-entity, and application/xml-dtd --    for use in exchanging network entities that are related to the    Extensible Markup Language (XML) while defining text/xml and text/    xml-external-parsed-entity as aliases for the respective application/    types.  This specification also standardizes the '+xml' suffix for    naming media types outside of these five types when those media types    represent XML MIME entities.
