If we decide to go with the UTF-8 proposal, how will a management =
application distinguish between a newer printer that is using UTF-8 and =
an older "misbehaving" printer that is using non-ASCII (such as PC-850 =
or Roman-8 for two examples)? The ASCII portion will be displayed =
correctly, but the characters that have the eighth bit set will be =
misinterpreted.=20
