Hi folks,

Below is an excerpt from Ned Freed (IETF Applications Area Director)
comments on ESMTP extensions for CONNEG from the IETF Internet FAX WG
<draft-ietf-fax-esmtp-conneg-01.txt>:

"...Although several examples of returned capabilities are shown, the
document
isn't very specific about how capabilities have to be formatted. In
particular,
I'd expect to see capabilities often stored as a single string without any
line
breaks. Some advice on how to take such a string and format it for inclusion
in
the reponse seems warranted."

Note Ned's preference fill a flat string without newline characters.  Advice
worth considering (although the IPP string length of 1024 would be
problematic
here...).

Cheers,
