In MySQL, a table type or engine can be specified after the "create table" statement, like so:
CREATE TABLE table
"TYPE" is a synonym for "ENGINE".
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/4.1/en/storage-engines.html says "ENGINE is the preferred term, but cannot be used before MySQL 4.0.18. TYPE is available beginning with MySQL 3.23.0, the first version of MySQL for which multiple storage engines were available."
