    Version D0.8 of the Media Standardized Names Specification is now available
    at:

    ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/media-sizes/pwg-media-08.pdf (.doc or .rtf)

    This version most likely does not represent the final document. The
    outstanding issues include:

    1. Should the format of the Media Size Self Describing Name include the
    units? The meeting in Portland agreed not to include the units but the
    recent teleconference concluded that specifying the units was preferred.
    The Portland agreement uses the "class" name to provide an implied units.

    2. Should the short dimension be separated from the long dimension by a
    hyphen ("-") or an "x"?

    3. How should the "class" (or "prefix") portion of those Self Describing
    Names that are not specified by a sanctioned standards body be defined? I
    have added "om" to those names that did not have a clearly defined "class".
    There are three in Table 6 and five in Table 7. Also, Table 3 has an entry
    "na-asme-..." that could be justified with a class of "asme-" instead of
    "na".

    More Type Names and Size Names are also likely to be added in the next
    version. (Assuming that we can resolve the above issues first ;-)

    The above issues may be discussed during the IPP phone conference next
    Wednesday (May 16th) if they cannot be resolved via email.
