    Hello Tom and all,

    I have some questions about the following cases:

    Q1: If a sheet is Photo Papar with tabs, what's a Media Type name
    (MEDIA_PHOTOGRAPHIC_LABEL or photographic or tab-stock) ?

    Q2: If a sheet is Photo Paper of a high gloss film, what's a Media Type Name
    (MEDIA_HIGH_GLOSS_FILM or photographic) ?

     I think it's better to add "high-gloss-film" to Media Coating Attribute (like a
    "glossy","high-glossy" etc. ), because "high-gloss-film" represent a coating.
    If so, I could specify a Media Type("Photogpaphic") and Media coating
    ("high-gloss-film") in the Q2 case.

    I'd like to add the following media types(*) and media coating (**) to existing
    list.

    ==================================================================
    Canon Media | media type | media coating
    ==================================================================
    High Gloss(Photo )Film | Photographic | high-gloss-film (**)
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    Photo Paper Pro | Photographic | high-gloss
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    High Resolution Paper | stationery(?) | coated (**)
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    Back Print Film | BackPrintFilm(*) | none
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    Fabric Sheets | stationery(?) | fabric (**)
    ==================================================================
