    Thanks for the information about decimal 50 (Prescribe) and 39 (LIPS).

    I've added this information to an updated version of the Print-MIME-tab.doc
    file and will collect any additional information that anyone supplies to any
    of these three mailing lists.

    The current description of 39 (LIPS) is: "LBP Image Processing System"

    Any idea what LBP stands for? Is there a better description of LIPS that
    Canon would like to see?

    Also is there a public reference to a specification, such as a manual or
    standard, that could be added? IANA likes to have references to the
    complete spec.

    Regarding Enum(decimal):50,

    I believe Prescribe was originated by Kyocera.
    The Standard language of their printers are PRESCRIBE II.

    And also regarding Enum(decimal):39,LIPS is the Standard PDL originated
    by Canon.
