Optional arguments
------------------
-``context``
+``dictionary``
A dictionary of values to add to the template context. By default, this
is an empty dictionary. If a value in the dictionary is callable, the
view will call it just before rendering the template.
+``context_instance``
+ The context instance to render the template with. By default, the template
+ will be rendered with a ``Context`` instance (filled with values from
+ ``dictionary``). If you need to use `context processors`_, you will want to
+ render the template with a ``RequestContext`` instance instead. Your code
+ might look something like this::
+
+ return render_to_response('my_template.html',
+ my_data_dictionary,
+ context_instance=RequestContext(request))
+
``mimetype``
**New in Django development version:** The MIME type to use for the
resulting document. Defaults to the value of the ``DEFAULT_CONTENT_TYPE``
setting.
