Thanks, Ira. A couple of these were caught by one of the Xerox guys who
ran it through a compiler, too. I'll make the changes (I don't really
understand why there IS a comma in (1) and NOT a comma in (2)). I'm
working on moving to 72 columns, replacing the goofed up stick figures and
replacing the top-25 chart with a reference.

I picked up this file yesterday from the PWG site and used
SMICng 'mstrip' tool to extract the MIB source. It compiles
after fixing three one-line typos (all commas that are missing
or present when they shouldn't be):
1) chNDPS(43), -- Ira - added comma
2) chIPP(44) -- Ira - removed comma
3) mediaPathcannotDuplexMediaSelected(1304), -- Ira - added comma
[the word 'cannot' should also be capitalized in the above]
Also, your entire file is still set at 65 columns of text (as
Randy Turner had done) and not 72 columns (as required by RFC
Editor for I-Ds and RFCs). This causes some additional havoc
with some tables.
I haven't reviewed the text updates and clarifications yet.
Will do so shortly.

Yes, I'm all for highlighting it on the PWG web site and even putting a
reference to it in the MIB draft (if that's "allowed"). I agree the "Top
25" was a valuable exercise. It's just the lack of usability in the
current text format that I don't like.

Generating that Top 25 table turned out to be the *only* way the group
could narrow its focus to determine what was truly important with respect
to alerts and associated usage scenarios, IMHO.
I certainly understand how hard it is to put such a big table in such a
small format, but this table should be retained *someplace* that everyone
can access. How's about putting it on the PWG website in a
