    Hi,

    XPS - I agree with Mike that it's not appropriate as a required document
    format for IPP right now. But it *is* being formally standardized in ECMA
    Technical Committee 46:

      http://www.ecma-international.org/memento/TC46.htm

    And their current draft 1.2 is much improved from the earlier drafts
    - worth watching.

    Cheers,
    - Ira
