Comment on Why is there no Content Type / Mime Type / HTTP Header for a number?

I never heard of anything so originally crazy and absurd. All the data in computers is binary. HTML is a container that is readable to humans. Whenever any embedded data goes in, it looks readable. We see ASCII in there. Greek letters are for example, some codes mostly made of numbers. ASCII is rooted in binary numbers up to certain number. There aren't enough greek letters for all the constants of physics. You need to conceptualize. The data announcements in HTML blocks only specify that a table of data is coming, beginning and ending. And everything is just numbers, ones and zeros.
