Subject: PMP> Editorial Suggestion: add 'International Consideratins'

Each new IETF standard is supposed to have a section entitled:

'International Considerations'

I suggest that we introduce such a sub-section line in the 'General Printer'
section, entitled 'International Considerstions'
right where the current text occurs (which needs updating with the
new proposal). I've indicated the new line with a single change bar:

2.2.1 General Printer

The general printer sub-unit is responsible for the overall
control and status of the printer. There is exactly one general
printer sub-unit in a printer. The general printer sub-unit is
represented by the General Printer Group in the model. In
addition to the providing the status of the whole printer and
allowing the printer to be reset, this Group provides information
on the status of the packaging of the printer, in particular, the
covers. The general printer sub-unit is usually implemented on
the system controller.

| 2.2.1.1 International Considerations

The localization portion of the general printer sub-unit is
responsible for identifying the natural language, country, and
character set in which character strings are expressed. There may
be one or more localizations supported per printer. The available
localizations are represented by the Localization table.

Localization is only performed on those strings in the MIB that
are explicitly marked as being localized. All other character
strings are returned in ASCII.

The character set portion of the general printer sub-unit is
responsible for identifying the possible character sets that are
used by the interpreters, the operator console, and in network
management requests for display objects. There may be one or more
character sets per printer. The understood character sets are
represented by the Character Set Table.
