This request was posted to the IPP mailing list, but should have been
submitted to the PMP list.

Comments should be directed to the actual requestor, Al Brahme
(, as well as to the PMP list.

Lloyd: do we have time to get this enum accepted for placement in
the new draft? (Assuming no objections from the PMP list.)

Thanks for your reply. I propse the following enum for TIFF-F.

langTIFF_F (47) -- the Tagged Image File Format adopted for fax (TIFF-F) by
ietf_fax working group and specified in the ietf draft
published by them
