Its definitely not an image,its could be an open type font and other types of fonts and glyph data, specifically I want to return a character buffer through stdout back to the client (meaning I want to return a stream containing this character buffer containing this binary font/glyph data).

The content type should match the file type.
If it's a gif image you use 'Content-type: image/gif''
What kind of file is "font and glyph" data?  Is this a true type font?

Hi Folks:
I'm interested in rendering binary font and glyph data dynamically from a service written in C and fastcgi using Apache, I was wondering what the correct mime_type for this should be in my fastcgi application, currently I have the following:

FCGX_FPrintF(out,"Content-type: application/octet-stream\r\nStatus: 200 OK\r\n\r\n");

Is this correct, whenever I call my fastcgi app the browser immediately asks me what to do with my fastcgi application instead of executing it and rendering the dynamic font and glyph data.
