Abstract

   This document is a revised version of RFC 2301.  The revisions,

   summarized in the list attached as Annex B, are based on discussions

   and suggestions for improvements that have been made since RFC 2301

   was issued in March 1998, and on the results of independent

   implementations and interoperability testing.

   This RFC 2301 revision describes the Tag Image File Format (TIFF)

   representation of image data specified by the International

   Telecommunication Union (ITU-T) Recommendations for black-and-white

   and color facsimile.  This file format specification is commonly

   known as TIFF for Fax eXtended (TIFF-FX).  It formally defines

   minimal, extended, and lossless Joint Bi-level Image experts Group

   (JBIG) profiles (Profiles S, F, J) for black-and-white fax and base

   JPEG, lossless JBIG, and Mixed Raster Content profiles (Profiles C,

   L, M) for color and grayscale fax.  These profiles correspond to the

   content of the applicable ITU-T Recommendations.
