MIME is Multipart Internet Mail Extension (IIRC)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MIME

It's basically a way of identifying the type of a file. On the Internet, not everything is identified by the extension.

Apache Handlers are programs (or I suppose you could call them plugins) to Apache web server that is used to handle particular types of files. E.G. Perl files (.pl) are usually handled by mod_perl, Python (.py) by mod_python and PHP (.php) by mod_php.
