I would like to explicitly point your attention to the following draft 
which was just published:

>A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts 
>	Title		: Text string notation for Dial Sequences and GSTN / 
>                         E.164 addresses
>	Filename	: draft-allocchio-gstn-00.txt
>This memo describes the full set of notations needed to represent
>in a text string a Dial Sequence. A Dial Sequence is normally
>composed by Dual Tone Multi Frequency (DTMF) elements [1] plus 
>separators and the additional 'actions' (such as 'wait for
>dialtone', 'pause for N secs', etc.) which could be needed to 
>successfully establish the connection with the target service:
>this includes the cases where subaddresses or DTMF menu navigation 
>apply. Global Switched Telephone Numbers (GSTN) / E.164 addresses 
>(commonly called 'telephone numbers') [2] are a subset of a Dial 
>Sequence, and thus use the same set of notations.
>A URL for this Internet-Draft is:

As already stated in the abstract, the intention for this document is to 
provide a unique syntax for Dial Sequences, including expecially phone 
numbers as a subset. The definitions contained in the draft actually come 
from existing Draft Standard and Proposed Standard specifications, but 
were collected here to provide a quick, easy and unique reference 
document for anybody needing this particualr encoding. The original idea 
comes from the Application Area Directors, and I made the collection and 
edited the I-D.

As some of you already did (thank you indeed !), spotting some needed 
corrections, I kindly invite you to provide me your comments and 
suggestions. They will also be useful to the revision of the Draft and 
Proposed standards the definitions come from.

Thank you all, and regards!
