AbstractThis document describes the registration of the MIME sub-type image/tiff-fx. The encodings are defined by File Format for Internet Fax and its extensions. RFC-2119 [REQ]. TIFF-FX] and its extensions.
RFC 2301 "File Format for Internet Fax" [TIFF-FX]. While a brief scope and feature description is provided in this section as background information, the reader is directed to the original TIFF-FX specification (File Format for Internet Fax) to obtain complete feature and technical details. TIFF] and selected TIFF Technical Notes [TTN1, TTN2] are the primary references for describing TIFF and defining TIFF fields. This document is the primary reference for defining TIFF field values for fax applications.
Interoperability considerations: The ability of implementations to handle all the defined applications (or profiles within applications) of TIFF-FX may not be ubiquitous. As a result, implementations may decode and attempt to display the encoded TIFF-FX image data only to determine that the image cannot be rendered. Published specification: TIFF-FX (Tag Image File Format Fax eXtended) is defined in: RFC 2301 "File Format for Internet Fax", January 1998 McIntyre, L., Zilles, S., Buckley, R., Venable, D., Parsons, G., and J. Rafferty.
