WSP Content Type

The Content Type codes are numeric identifiers for a media type. The numbering space is divided into three sections:

  • 0x00 to 0xFF - well-known values, named in the WSP specification.
  • 0x100 to 0xFFFF - registered values, listed below.  Must be IANA-registered before assigned a number.
  • 0x10000 to 0xFFFFFF - private or experimental values.  May be used at will.  Listed here simply to advise people of their use. 
See WSP 30-April-1998, section, for more information.
  Note on the Encoding Version: The encoding version is typically frozen a few weeks before the release. The current version is 1.5. More information on the process of freezing the encoding version will be published here by Q4/2002.
