MIME type name: application

MIME subtype name: vnd.wrq-hp3000-labelled

Required parameters: none

Optional parameters: none

Encoding considerations: Since the encoded file may contain long lines or
        binary data, encoding should be BASE64 or QUOTED-PRINTABLE if

Security considerations: Since the encoded file may be any supported HP3000
        file type, including an executable file, appropriate caution should
        be excercised.

Interoperability considerations: Since HP3000 files have specific attributes
        (separate from their contents) that must be preserved in transport,
        this encoding imbeds file attribute information at the beginning of
        the body part. Inclusion of these attributes makes the data essent-
        ially useless to other platforms, but is required in order to
        eventually reconstruct an identical file on a destination HP3000.
        This encoding should only be used for files which are intended to
        be transported only to another HP3000 system.

Published specification: Not available.
