MIME application/x-www-form-urlencoded

Mime Type: Application
MIME Subtype: X-www-form-urlencoded

Emails as well as HTML pages make use of Webforms to solicit and capture feedback information over an email or a web page. MIME type Application/x-www-form-urlencoded refers to a webform that may be embedded in the email content. The definition of application/x-www-form-urlencoded is not defined in IANA listing. However, the definition for the same is followed as per XForms standard, which is an XML-based standard for strict adherence to various elements including web based forms, which, in turn, defined through the currently discussed application type.

Program designated for opening application/x-www-form-urlencoded

The MIME type is based on open standards defined through Extended Markup Language and the XForms standards within it. Xforms is a guideline to developers to help them with form data in XML format.

The file extension can be opened by any browser that is W3C compliant, without any hindrance, or need of any external plugin. The standards defined within MIME are still very outdated. Due to compatibility issues with few browsers, having Webforms within email is usually avoided.

Form data is usually sent by two methods – GET and POST. The POST method makes use of the MIME type application/x-www-form-urlencoded to post the form data with all its fields through a single stream.
