These maps came from the following MS KB article:

You need to add the correct mime types for IIS. You could do it for the individual extensions you want using the below steps:

open IIS Manager
Right click Web Sites
Select Properties 
Select HTTP Headers 
Select Mime Types 
Enter a new extension and the appropriate mime type.
Repeat as needed for each extension.

Same as above but in the Feature pane call Mime Types.

Mime settings.
