As part of the Microsoft Office Documenting Imaging investigation, I've come across a couple of tags that aren't being recognised by tiffdump: 37679 (0x932f) UNDEFINED (7) 3096<0x1 00 0x12 0xc 00 00 0x69 0x73 0x20 0x63 0x68 0x61 0x70 0x74 0x65 0x72 0x20 0x75 0x6e 0x69 0x74 0x79 0x2e 0x20 ...> 37681 (0x9331) UNDEFINED (7) 1705<0x2 00 00 00 0x1b 0x2a 00 00 0x1 00 00 00 0xff 0xff 0xff 0xff 00 00 00 00 0x78 0x1 0xed 0x98 ...>

Those (0x932f and 0x9331) are from a normal TIFF files (that is 0x4949 magic numbered files).

I'm also seeing those in MDI files, plus 37680 (0x9330) UNDEFINED (7) 4096<0xd0 0xcf 0x11 0xe0 0xa1 0xb1 0x1a 0xe1 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 ...>

I've checked for these tags at http://www.awaresystems.be/imaging/tiff/tifftags.html, but not got any hits.

Any suggestions as to what these might be?
