Hi Daniel,

thank you for the offer, but after consulting with the upstream author
of NJplot and SeaView, it apperars that nobody use these MIME types

This is interesting, because I was hesitating between text/ and
aplication/ in some cases. For PerlPrimer, I swiched to
application/x-perlprimer, because although the file is readable as
simple text, it does not have much interest. For the multiple sequence
alignments, in contrary, I will keep text/x-clustalw-alignment. For the
phylogenetic trees, I do not know… application/x-clustalw-alignment is
probably better if nobody reads the tree directly in the text file.

Here is a link to PerlPrimers's sharedmimeinfo file. Is it correct ?
