    We decided in Portland NOT to provide infinite levels of details about all the
    possible variations of things like coated stationery. Let's leave it at that.
    The gory details should be left for the more complete future XML description
    project.

    Mike,

    One possible solution is that we leave 'stationery-coated' in the standard
    as being generic, i.e., for an unspecified dpi. Then we could add
    additional 'stationery-coated-xxx' names where xxx is more specific.

    The question is what would we be specifying in the xxx? Would it be dpi?

    So would we have the following Media Type Names:

    'stationery-coated'
    Separately cut sheets of an opaque material whose coating is designed for
    use in ink jet printers for an unspecified resolution.

    'stationery-coated-normal'
    Separately cut sheets of an opaque material whose coating is designed for
    use in ink jet printers for normal resolution, in the neighborhood of 300
    dpi.

    'stationery-coated-high'
    Separately cut sheets of an opaque material whose coating is designed for
    use in ink jet printers for high resolution, in the neighborhood of 600 dpi.

    What about much higher resolutions than 600? Can the same paper be used?

    Another possibility is to leave out 'stationery-coated' and just have the
    two new ones.

    Comments?

    Tom

    Just butting in to note that there are more than one way to coat paper for
    ink-jets (and yes, I think "Bubble-Jet" is a Cannon trademark...it's
    certainly the name of the their ink jet printers). I have Epson printers
    and they use two different types of paper...one for 360 dpi printing, and
    one for 720 dpi. The coatings are different for the two resolutions, as the
    "bleed rate" of the ink needs to be different for the different dot sizes
    used by the two resolutions. I don't know that you can get away with a
    single "ink jet coating" name even now for this reason, and I expect that
    this will become a bigger problem in future as resolutions and other factors
    change.
