    See comments. I will send an updated draft of the appendix out tomorrow.

    << Look good. A couple of minor comments on the Appendix:

    1. Media Coating Name entry should be Media Finish Name to agree with the
    rest of the Media standard (though all of the Finish Names in the body of
    the standard are explained as an "xxx coating" and 'none' is "no coating"
    and the IPP Production Printing member attribute is "media-front-coating"
    and "media-back-coating", so an alternative would be to change Media Finish
    Name to Media Coating Name in the body of the standard).

    RB>> Done (changed appendix to Media Finish Name)

    2. In the entry:

    "media" Job Template attribute, including the "media-default",
    "media-ready", and "media-supported" Printer Description

    the word "Description" should be deleted, since these attributes are not
    Printer Description attribute, but are Printer attributes that are Job
    Template attributes.

    RB>> Done.

    3. Note 3 should indicate that the values are numbers. So change the note

    The media sizes are included in the "media-size" member attribute of the
    Job Template attribute.


    The media sizes are included in the "media-size" member attribute of the
    Job Template attribute as a pair of numeric values in 100th of a mm.

    RB>> I added all but "in 100th of a mm." Otherwise, we are adding too much detail. This appendix is not intended to replace the IPP specification.

    [Note to Harry: The units here are 100th of a mm, instead of 10th of mm,
    because there are no English units. Therefore, the English sizes are
    expressed as 1/2540 th of an inch. So the added precision was needed to
    avoid rounding errors.]

    Subject: IPP> Appendix to Reference Exisitng Usage

    Here is my proposal for a reference appendix that defines the usage of media
    names in existing standards. This is a compact version of the recent
    proposal from Tom Hastings.

    I intend to include this appendix in the next version of the Media Names
