>From RFC2046: "application -- some other kind of data, typically
either uninterpreted binary data or information to be processed by an
application." That pretty much defines a Web page as far as I can see.

And if I recall correctly, application/xhtml-xml is the W3C's
recommended media time for XHTML documents.

The definition for multi-part isn't quite so easy to grasp on perusing
the RFC. It seems to involve discreet pieces of data with very
specific boundaries, and I don't think Web pages really fit into that
