This element is used in the DocIcon.xml file to drive mapping between file extensions and their corresponding document library icons.

If you want the document library feature to support a new file extension, add the extension to a ByExtension section and then restart the server.

See DocIcons Element (Document Icons) for an example that shows how to use the ByExtension element.
