In your previous example, tType would be "text/plain". However, this
might not be necessary to set as I think this is the default. Same
for the encoding.

These are html attributes for the browser.

The "name" attribute is needed. Using your example, it should look
if libUrlMultipartFormAddPart(tForm,"infile", tFile, tType, tEnc)
is empty then
The "size"attribute is for the browser.

Probably a good idea. Meanwhile, below is the rfc for the multipart/
formdata. It may be useful if you are doing a lot of form stuff.
