The MIRAX description is intended to be an introduction to the format, 
not a specification.  I do not know of any publicly-available specification.

In this instance, you can answer your question by examining the first 
ten lines of Slidedat.ini and the first hundred bytes of Index.dat, or 
by reading src/openslide-vendor-mirax.c or misc/parse-mirax.py in the 
OpenSlide source tree.
