Abstract

   This document defines a content media feature schema for Internet
   fax.

   It is a profile of the media feature registration mechanisms [1,2,3]
   for use in performing capability identification between extended
   Internet fax systems [5].  It replaces and updates the feature schema
   defined in RFC 2531.

   fax.

   It is a profile of the media feature registration mechanisms [1,2,3]
   for use in performing capability identification between extended
