Here's what I read, besides the actual TIFF specification that is:

Here's what I read:

That's just not correct, again. I spent about a page of text
explaining exactly why.

I'm not trying to pick a fight, man. I merely gave you some advice,
best I could. If you choose to ignore it, by all means, do so, but
please don't misrepresent this discussion in order to justify doing
so. Why would you be needing any justification, anyway?

Dudes, chill... I'm not making money here. I have no vested interest
whatsoever. I was merely freely offering some advice, for you to use
as you see fit.

I remove myself from this discussion now.
