[MFD] PCL Symbol Sets and CharsetWKV

Hi Jim,

The authoritative list of charset identifiers (in IPP,
the Printer MIB, and elsewhere in PWG standards)
is the relatively frequently updated IANA Charset
Registry at:

http://www.iana.org/assignments/character-sets

The CharsetWKV only partially tracks this registry,
to the best of my knowledge.

The equivalent values for the Printer MIB in the
Localization group are in IANA Charset MIB (I
wrote the original version) at:

http://www.iana.org/assignments/ianacharset-mib

Note that the identifiers and values here are taken
from the 'csXxxx' aliases and 'MIBenum' values
in the IANA Charset Registry.

I haven't done the exercise, but I think you should
be able to find PCL Symbol Set correspondences
by searching the IANA Charset Registry.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
- Ira
