    Hi,

    I just discovered the hard way that this '.mib' file was
    stored in Binary mode.

    So if you fetch this '.mib' file to a Win32 machine in Text
    (ASCII) mode, the line breaks will be messed up.

    Change to Binary mode before fetching it by FTP (your Web
    browser won't know any better, so you may have to resort
    to a command-line FTP tool).

    If you're _not_ on a Win32 machine, those MS-DOS style line
    breaks may give you grief. There are various UNIX and Mac
    text filters to fix them up.

    Cheers,
    - Ira

    PS - We'll get this right when posting the '.mib' again after
    Last Call completes.
