    To answer Ron's questions:

    1. The reference [REG] should be added to the References section as:

    [REG]
            Holtman, K., Mutz, A. and T. Hardie, "Feature Tag Registration
    Procedures", BCP 31, RFC 2506, March 1999.

    or the [REG] could be replaced by [RFC2506] in the body of the document and
    the following added to the references section instead:

    [RFC2506]
            Holtman, K., Mutz, A. and T. Hardie, "Feature Tag Registration
    Procedures", BCP 31, RFC 2506, March 1999.

    2. The double occurrence of "-" was a typo. I was trying to include both
    "-" (hyphen) and "_" (underline) in the syntax, as we have done for IPP
    keywords. So rather than deleting the second "-", it should be "_". Then
    the ABNF production for size-name would be:

       size-name = lowalpha *( lowalpha | digit | "-" | "_" )

    Unless we think it is too confusing to allow both "-" and "_"?

    The latest version is now available at:

    ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/media-sizes/pwg-media-05.pdf

    The major change is the merging of the envelope sizes
    with the other tables and the separation of the media
    type with the size. In addition I have added the
    definition of a format for custom media types and color
    per a request from Norbert.

    There are still two open issues that I am waiting for
    clarification from Tom.

    1. Tom added a reference [REG] in section 3, but no
    corresponding entry in the References section.

    2. The ABNF for the size name in section 5.1 may be
    incorrect. I am not an ABNF expert, but I believe that
        | "-" | "-" ) should be simply | "-" )

    I will try to attend the IPP teleconference tomorrow
    to discuss any other issues concerning this document.
