Hi John,

Some background.  The PWG is a member organization of
the IEEE-ISTO.  The PWG standards-track has only two 
levels, Candidate Standard and Standard.  All current
PWG standards-track documents are at the first level.
Each PWG standards-track document is assigned a 
permanent document number when it reaches Candidate
Standard level, of the form "PWG 51xy.z", e.g., PWG
5105.1 is the PWG Semantic Model.  Note that _dot_
infixed in the document number.

I suggest the following ABNF for PWG mapping strings
(using productions from RFC 4234 'ABNF'):

pwg-ms   = DQUOTE pwg-num "." "PWG" "|" pwg-text DQUOTE
pwg-num  = "PWG" "51" 2digit "-" 1*digit
pwg-text = *(SP / VCHAR)

For example, using this format:

  MappingStrings { "PWG5101-1.PWG|Section 4 Media Color Names" }

The pesky infixed dot has been converted to a hyphen.

Comments?

Cheers,
- Ira (editor of PWG CIM refresh white paper)
