    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,
    - Ira McDonald
