An attribute of a FILE or TEXT element which supplies an external filename and format, e.g.


If the format is not obvious from the file extension (such as ESCP, JPG, TIF, DCM, BMP, DCX, PCX, PNG, RTF, IDF, IMG), EscapeE can also identify and process PDF, PostScript, PCL XL, DICOM, JPEG and Epson (Esc-P) files automatically, even when a non-specific extension such as PRN is used.

Alternatively, the format may be specified in the FILETYPE attribute.
