there are 8 datatypes, 7 are tabular / text files, one is binary. The
binary format also shows up in the dropdown.
I can send you the datatype specification python code if you'd like, Im not
sure what you need to see.

Thanks for the quick response. What is the set of datatypes you are
specifying? It is possible that one of the specified datatypes can be
implicitly converted to html and text e.g. a fasta file will be listed even
if only tabular has been specifed as valid datatype. In other words, Galaxy
will implicitly convert the fasta file to a tabular file and present it as
a valid option in the select field.
