Hi Joris,

I don't think they ignored their own specification...

A subpart of a spec, is never able to overwrite the grand scheme. The grand scheme does any tag to be an array of values.

In what specification is the concept of the SubIFD defined? In this pagemaker specification wording is quite clear: "If there is more than 1 child image for a given parent image, the NextIFD value of Child #1 must point to Child #2".

I must be missing something. Please let me know if you have a better reference for the SubIFD definition. (I can't find mention of it in the TIFF6 spec.)

Thanks.
