    Ron,

    I think you are right. There is no need for the Media Name Standard to say
    anything about what an implementation should do if the Media Size Name
    (e.g., na-letter), has dimensions that don't agree with the standard. So
    ignore my suggestion.

    Thanks,
    Tom

    Tom,

    I am not sure why this is an issue. If we have defined a name in the
    specification with this mismatch, it must be corrected. If a name
    mismatch occurs in a custom name, it is up to the person that creates
    the custom name to ensure it is what he wanted.

    If you are referring to a corrupted name, then it is up to the receiver
    to determine the appropriate action, which should be specified by the
    protocol (UPnP, IPP, etc). If the device does not have a sizes table
    to compare, then all it can do is accept the size. If it can validate,
    then it should reject.

    I don't agree a statement is needed in the PWG Media specification for
    this case.

            Ron

    Ron,

    Minor issue: which wins if dimensions are correct for the media size name?

    For example, for the Media Size Self-Describing Name is iso-a4.100-200, is
    the size ISO A4 or 10 by 20 mm? I suggest that the dimensions take
    precedence over the name. So we need to add such a statement in the
    document.

    Comments?

    Tom
