  4. Enter one or more MIME types and the respective file name enhancement. In doing so, be aware of MIME-standard compliance.

    . The file name enhancement has a standard naming: or .

    The standard was established by the HTML work group for the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and was determined in the Request for Comments (RFC) 2854 The 'text/html' Media Type (June 2000).

  5. Save your entries. You arrive at the Workbench Request Query dialog box.
