concerned about the example >given.  I don't know what language it's in,
but in IPP the syntax tag is applies to an individual >attribute value, not
a whole attribute.  So it should be rewritten as

>    value-tag=keyword
>    attr-value='printer-location'


I don't understand your concern about the language, because the values of
the 'requested-attributes' is of the type 1setOfKeyword. A value with a
'keyword' type must
be in en-us language and ascii character set. In the above example the
response would
in details looks like,

value-tag=1setOfKeyword
name-length=0x0014
name='requested-attributes'
value-length=0x000c
value='printer-info'
value-tag=1setOfKeyword
name-length=0x0000
value-length=0x0010
value='printer-location'

/HOLST
