Subject: Request for MIME media type Text/Vendor Tree - vnd.fly

Name : John-Mark Gurney

E-mail : [email protected]

MIME media type name : Text

MIME subtype name : Vendor Tree - vnd.fly

Required parameters : none

Optional parameters : 
none

Encoding considerations : 
7bit ASCII Text, characters 040 through 0176 including standard white
space characters such as 011, 012, 013, 014 and 015.  There are no
line length limitations as we do not parse the file line by line.

Security considerations : 
fly files are normally parsed at the server level.  so the security is very
smiliar to that of html and other text types.  text/vnd.fly files do usually
interact w/ a database, so you have to make sure that the user supplied data
is correct, but this is something that you normally need to do.

All parsed files are pulled from the local filesystem, so there is not
a problem of a user suppling data that gets parsed unless you let the
user modify your pages.

Interoperability considerations : 
none, the files are platform independant

Published specification :
