It would take me most (probably all) of next week to get a complete =
answer. I would have to get together the people that are the experts in =
localization, JetAdmin (for various systems) and printer firmware; =
explain the problem and proposed solutions to them; let them evaluate =
the impact to their components; collect and summarize their comments.=20

I can do this but I have to be assured that it would be of value. So far =
we've been coming up with various solutions and tweaking them. Are we =
sure that one of the five alternatives will be the final answer? I don't =
want to waste the time of a bunch of people.

In all honesty, I feel like we've completed the Printer MIB several =
times now. I want to get it "out the door".
