Hi Bob,

Most recent version <draft-ietf-ipp-notify-mailto-02.txt>
(internally dated 13 July, file date at IETF server 21 July),
section 6.2 'Message Body', fourth paragraph, lines 925 to 927,
bottom of page 16:

"A Printer MUST send the following localized information in the message
body.  The specific working of this information and its layout are
implementation dependent." (followed by a list on the top of page
17 of various attributes that are MUST.

A global search for MUST in this spec and a careful reading would
be a good idea, but section 6.2 is normative for the body content.

Cheers,
- Ira
