Dear RedHat,

I found a small omission in RedHat 5.2. Could I suggest that
you add to your list of Mime types (as defined in
/etc/mime.types) an entry for the PNG format:

	image/png	.png

For your convenience I quote a part of the
PNG-specification:

	The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) has
	registered "image/png" as the Internet Media Type
for PNG
	[RFC-2045], [RFC-2048]. For robustness, decoders may
choose
	to also support the interim media type "image/x-png"
that
	was in use before registration was complete.

Kind regards,

Willem van Schaik
