I'm just beginning to get a handle on this, but do most of you envision =
"ipp://printer" or "http://printer:633" or "printo:printer" being =
handled by
the users web client (ie netscape)? I had assumed that most companies =
want to develope their own clients, and that in the future users would =
able to choose any company's client they preffered, or even a
free/share-ware solution.

IF you ARE talking about the necesity of developing specialized =
print clients (as opposed to a java client that loads from a web page =
some-such), then it seems to me that you would want to settle on a =
such as "printto:" or "printer:" which would in fact call up a seperate

How are most of you planning on this being implemented? (do you really =
to trust your printer's interface to the MS/Netscape war?)

You misunderstand my suggestion. I mean that printto: is like
mailto: - it
loads a client and passes in the destination address. It has nothing
to do
with the protocol that gets used to send the print.=20
