In reading Steve's document processing note, I realized that Windows (and DPA)
allows more than one page range to be specified in a single (document)
print job.


[I've already passed on to Scott the typo that the data type is
'rangeOfInteger', not rangeOf integer' in the table and the heading,
so I've assumed that change here.]




1. To capture that same functionlaty I suggest that we change the
heading from:


4.2.14 page-range (rangeOfInteger)


to:


4.2.14 page-ranges (1setOf rangeOfInteger)




2. Also the Job Template table would need to be changed from:


page-range            No            page-range-supported 
(rangeOfInteger)                    (boolean)


to:


page-ranges            No            page-ranges-supported 
(1setOF rangeOfInteger)              (boolean)




3. By the way, the description in 4.2.14 (soon to be renumbered with
notify-events and notify-addresses being deleted), last sentence
refers to the "page-range-default" attribute always having a value of
zero (0) meaning that the default is always the entire document.


I suggest that we delete that sentence, since a 0 isn't a valid value
for a rangeOfInteger, and the table says "No".  Or Change the sentence
from:  


The page-range-default value is zero (0) and indicates that all pages of
the document will be printed if a page-range is not specified.


to:


There is no "page-ranges-default" attribute.  If the "page-ranges" attribute
is not supplied, all pages of the document will be printed.


Comments?
