Parameter Name



To specify the content type of a referenced object.

Format Definition

This property parameter is defined by the following notation:

 fmttypeparam = "FMTTYPE" "=" type-name "/" subtype-name
                ; Where "type-name" and "subtype-name" are
                ; defined in Section 4.2 of [RFC4288].


This parameter can be specified on properties that are used to reference an object. The parameter specifies the media type [RFC4288] of the referenced object. For example, on the "ATTACH" property, an FTP type URI value does not, by itself, necessarily convey the type of content associated with the resource. The parameter value MUST be the text for either an IANA-registered media type or a non-standard media type.
