    I prefer option a). It is the most concise of all the formats and allows the addition of other dimensional units if they need to be added in the future.

    Option b) does not support new dimensional units.

    Option c) is too complex in merging the dimension units with the name "class".

    Option d) has the same problem as b). Option a) is still better, since it is not limited by dimensional resolution.

    Option e) is almost as good as a). It just doesn't "look" as nice.

    Sorry for the posting to the many lists, but Ron and I as editors of the PWG
    Media Standardized Names standard want to reach consensus on the syntax for
    the dimensions at the telecon tommorrow, Wednesday, May 2.

    At last week's UPnP Imaging WG meeting in Portland it was agreed to use the
    PWG Media Standardized Names standard for additional value of the MediaType
    and MediaSize parameters of the CreateJob action, so we need to finish the
    PWG Media standard.

    Since there has not been a clear consensus on any method at the PWG Media
    meeting last week in Portland and all of the methods have not been
    considered together at the same time (in Portland, we only considered
    methods b and c below), we'd like to list the alternatives and see if we can
    reach consensus. The following syntaxes have been considered or proposed
    over time in the following order for the Media Size Self Describing Name:

    a. original UPnP/HTML way (but with _ field separator): iso-a4_210x297mm,
    na-letter_8.5x11in
    b. Maui (D03-D07) way: iso-a4.2100-2970, na-letter.8500-11000
    c. Portland decision: iso_a4_210-297, na_letter_8.5-11
    d. All 1000ths of mm: iso-a4.210000-297000, na-letter.215900-279400
    e. Units as a separate third field: iso-a4_210-297_mm, na-letter_8.5-11_in

    Are there any other alternatives that we should add to the list?

    If you cannot attend the telecon, please send your rankings of these five
    methods to the ipp mailing list (see To: field above which is: ipp@pwg.org),
    in order not to flood people's email. In addition to ranking, please
    indicate any methods that you feel strongly in favor of or strongly against
    as well.

    Here are the telecon details:

    Time: May 2, 2001 10:00 - 12:00 PST (1:00 - 3:00 EST)
    Phone: 1-712-271-0309 (8*534-8273 for Xerox folks)
    Passcode: 98099#
