Hi Mike,

So is this a new PWG standard  practice decision?

Only post all new documents w/ HTTP links?   Because someone
has a browser so defective that it can't access FTP links?

Sorry, up all night on calls to TCG meeting sessions in Osaka, Japan,
so I'm a bit frustrated by this thread.

Cheers,
- Ira
