19.2 Internet Media Type multipart/byteranges

When an HTTP message includes the content of multiple ranges (for example, a response to a request for multiple non-overlapping ranges), these are transmitted as a multipart MIME message. The multipart media type for this purpose is called "multipart/byteranges".

The multipart/byteranges media type includes two or more parts, each with its own Content-Type and Content-Range fields. The parts are separated using a MIME boundary parameter.

          Media Type name:         multipart
          Media subtype name:      byteranges
          Required parameters:     boundary
          Optional parameters:     none

          Encoding considerations: only "7bit", "8bit", or "binary" are

          Security considerations: none

For example:

   HTTP/1.1 206 Partial content
   Date: Wed, 15 Nov 1995 06:25:24 GMT
   Last-modified: Wed, 15 Nov 1995 04:58:08 GMT
   Content-type: multipart/byteranges; boundary=THIS_STRING_SEPARATES

   Content-type: application/pdf
   Content-range: bytes 500-999/8000

   Content-type: application/pdf
