Redirected page[edit]

I've redirected MRZ to here - it didn't seem to contain anything worth merging, but if anyone wants to have a look and check please do feel free. The only material not duplicated was details of the checksum, which seems a bit excessive to include. Shimgray | talk | 20:45, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

page name change[edit]

The info here seems to be most tailored for machine readable travel documents. This becomes relevant with the large amount of machine readable ID-cards and alien's residence cards. Would it be good to change the name here to "machine readable travel document" (and provide a redirect?)L.tak (talk) 16:03, 18 July 2010 (UTC)

Fraud[edit]

Information contained within the MRZ aims to prevent fraud. Advertising this information to the general public and fraudsters does not help combat fraud. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 62.25.109.195 (talk) 09:39, 19 July 2010 (UTC)

1st and 2nd position of TD1 MRZ[edit]

Article currently states "IP" is used for passport cards and "ID" is used for national identification cards. Should the article also mention that "ID" is used for enhanced driver's licenses such as those issued by Minnesota and New York State? 68.117.32.237 (talk) 00:06, 11 December 2017 (UTC)
