I need to stream contents (msword and excel). Should I use the content-type: application/msword and application/excel?
When I accept files for upload, how do I advise the browser only to accept ms-word and excel documents? thanks.

The feature you're looking for to constrain upload types is the 'accept' attribute of the 'form' element, as explained in the standard here:
