It looks like the Imaging for Windows product that Microsoft is giving away is STILL producing those bogus JPEG-in-TIFF files.

i know a little bit of C. but pretty new to TIFF and graphic file formats. is it possible to write a small utility to convert these nasty MS TIFFs to some thing neat and standard complaint. if some one can give me some guidance and a starting point to understand TIFF i can give it a try.

I posted code which can be used to do this to the list. Did anyone actually see the code? I've never posted attachments from this mailer and do not know if they made it.

I tried to convince them to change it a while back when it was still called the Wang Imaging for Windows product, but I guess they didn't listen.

You mean they had the audacity to listen to a large corporation like Adobe who produced the flawed spec, but ingore an obviously more logical approach supplied by you? I'm shocked. :-)
