Hi Mike,

THANKS!  My cut-and-paste error.

I have corrected and reposted (to the same dated filename):

 ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/pmp/iana/langxps-20091102.txt

All - if there are no opposing opinions or clarifications by
Thursday (12 November) next week, I will submit these
updates to IANA.

Cheers,
- Ira (IETF Designated Expert for IANA Printer MIB)
