In the IPP Fax meeting in Maui (1/26/01) we decided that we needed two new data
types to deal with large lumps of data.
BigText. This is just like Text except that it is up to 65535 bytes long
BigOctetString. This is just like OctetString except it is up to 65535 bytes
BigText is used for vcard representation of users. [Note to ifx attendees - this
does need to be text since it contains localized human readable data - my
BigOctetString is used for CONNEG data. We are alos considering using it for
carrying digital certificates.
We considered several alternatives but this seemed the cleanest solution.
Can I therefore ask that this be a topic for your next meeting so that you can
bless this change (or not of course!)
