To identify the media type of a document quickly, PageSeeder uses a consistent set of icons.
Multiple media types might share the same icon. For example, all images use the same icon regardless of the actual file format. This is usually because they are treated in the same manner by PageSeeder.
The following table shows the icons based on the file extension.
|File using a known compression format
|MathML or Latex file
|Schematron or XML schema file
|Microsoft Word document
|Microsoft Excel spreadsheet
|Microsoft PowerPoint presentation
|Video streaming file
|Text or markdown file
XML is a common markup language used by many media types. PageSeeder marks as XML any document that uses XML, but it is not processed differently by PageSeeder.
PageSeeder identifies a file as an image, audio, or video type based on the corresponding media type. But since web browsers support different coding formats, it doesn’t mean that PageSeeder is able to process or display it.
