Hi all,

Is there a common understanding of what the proper file extension for MEI files should be?

I've been assuming .mei is the "standard", but a counter-example of .xml was recently brought to my attention. So, I thought I'd poll the collected wisdom and see what others were doing. Are you using .xml, .mei, or some other variation on these?


-- Should we register an actual mimetype? Maybe: application/vnd.music-encoding+xml ?
