    I've received a number of private rankings for these 5 methods, so if any of
    you would prefer to just reply (NOT REPLY ALL) and send your preferences to
    me, instead of sending to the IPP DL, I'll combine all that I receive for
    the telecon.

    Thanks,
    Tom

    Wed, May 2, 10-12 PDT (1-3 EDT)

            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#
