WebExplorer uses a rudimentary mailcap.
A fairly complete mime.types can be had from the Apache distribution.

I support this wish heartily. On systems which do have a
system-wide mime.types, it's a standard and easy-to-edit
way to record this information. On a system that doesn't,
it still has the advantage of being able to copy it
from a system that does :-)

There should be no need for Links to reinvent the wheel
(i.e. mime.types and mailcap)
