name/value pairs (encoded per the application/x-www-urlencoded definition).
There are also file uploads where the server accepts multipart/form-data -
each part has a content type associated. Of course, it's quite common to
just directly POST or PUT the binary content of the data being transferred.
fairly popular content-types when retrieving representations of resources.
RSS/Atom is getting more popular, but that could just be due to poor
caching... (that's sort of a joke...)
