    Hi folks,

    Warning to implementors of Printer MIB v2 - the posted version
    of the IANA Charset MIB is incomplete (due to bugs in my utility
    program - now corrected - see below).

    I removed the 'repaired' IANA Charset MIB attachment before
    forwarding this note, because it's very unofficial (although
    now correct for all charsets). Contact me directly.

    I'll let the PMP list know when a new 'official' version
    is available.

    Many thanks to my old cohort Chuck Adams (Xerox) for finding
    the footprints of these bugs and pointing them out to me!

    Cheers,
    - Ira McDonald

    Hi Chuck,

    Bugs (two separate ones) now fixed, generating about 30 more
    entries in the MIB (oops).

    Attached is a bootleg copy of the repaired IANA Charset MIB.

    We are in discussions with IETF, RFC Editor, and IANA about
    whether I'll just republish the base Internet-Draft (they
    don't like that, because it's already been IESG-approved)
    or IANA and RFC Editor will do the edits and corrections
    (messy, but possible).

    I'll keep the PMP list posted when anything's resolved.

    Cheers,
    - Ira McDonald

    Hi Chuck,

    EEK! You have discovered a bug in my utility, I should have tried
    to test for missed entries (somehow?) before releasing.

    Fortunately, the IANA Charset MIB I-D has only recently been approved
    by the IETF (yes!) and Michelle (IANA lady) and I are working on the
    logistics of her running the tool. Now I can fix the bug (when I
    find it!) and not have egg on my face with Michelle.

    Thanks,
    - Ira

    Ira,

    Long time no speak so here is an excuse to find out how things are going.

    I was reviewing the charsetmib and noticed the following are missing. Did I
    overlook them or would you like me to send you these in the mib format?

    The following character sets we support that are in the IANA "CHARACTER SETS
    (last updated 2002-09-30)"
    <http://www.iana.org/assignments/character-sets>

            Name: ISO-8859-15
            MIBenum: 111
            Source: ISO
                    Please see:
    <http://www.iana.org/assignments/charset-reg/ISO-8859-15>
            Alias: ISO_8859-15
            Alias: Latin-9

            Name: IBM00858
            MIBenum: 2089
            Source: IBM See
    (http://www.iana.org/assignments/charset-reg/IBM00858) [Mahdi]
            Alias: CCSID00858
            Alias: CP00858
            Alias: PC-Multilingual-850+euro

            Name: windows-1251
            MIBenum: 2251
            Source: Microsoft
    (http://www.iana.org/assignments/charset-reg/windows-1251) [Lazhintseva]
            Alias: None

            Name: windows-1257
            MIBenum: 2257
            Source: Microsoft
    (http://www.iana.org/assignments/charset-reg/windows-1257) [Lazhintseva]
            Alias: None

    Also there are a couple of HP character sets that we support that might need
    to be added to this MIB. How should we handle the following:

            PC1004 - not registered with IANA but part of the HP PCL font set
            Roman9 - not registered with IANA but part of the HP PCL font set
