Summary0000584: Mimetype of EPS with embedded tiff preview
DescriptionA regular EPS file will start with '%!'.
However there are EPS files with an embedded tiff-preview (Microsoft likes them).

Thoses files are identified by magic bytes described corectly in Magdir/msdos as 'DOS EPS Binary File Header'.

However I request to assign the mime-type 'application/postscript' to this tiff-preview contained EPS-files respectively since they are and should be treated as application/postscript by applications.

At least I would like to discuss to have at least any mime-type to that files since they are not just an unknown octet-stream.
Steps To ReproduceTake file provided as attachment.
Run `file -b` to see 'DOS EPS Binary File Postscript starts at byte 32 length 226840 TIFF starts at byte 226872 length 979378'
Run `file -b --mime`to get 'application/octet-stream; charset=binary'
Additional InformationAs resource for a discussion if this may have that mime-type see:
TagsNo tags attached.

According to this a possible solution would be something like 'image/x-eps'.
