    You should look at RFC 2569, entitled: "Mapping between LPD and IPP
    Protocols". IPP (RFC 2911) has a lot of character set and localization
    semantics in it, so those semantics may help in understanding how they might
    apply to LPD using the mapping semantics. (I have not studied RFC 259 from
    this perspective). I suspect that RFC 1179 which attempted to document LPD
    practice didn't go into such areas.

    There is also RFC 2708 "Job Submission Protocol Mapping Recommendations for
    the Job Monitoring MIB" that deals with mapping job attributes of PServer
    and RPrinter to the PWG Job Monitoring MIB (RFC 2707), that might also help.
    The PWG Job Monitoring MIB had localization and character set support in it.

    If you find that these documents are insufficient to answer your questions,
    please post the questions again to these lists, since such documents should
    include character and localization considerations.

            I had some questions with regards to localization
            specifically for PServer, RPrinter and LPD.

            The questions are as follows:
                    Character set/encoding supported?
                    Character set identification?
                    Character set negotiation?
                    Character Transformation encoding?

            Specifically in regards to:
                    Path name,
                    User name,
                    Domain name,
                    Host name,
                    Queue name,
                    Printer name,
                    Print server name,
                    Repository name

            Does anyone know of any RFC's or other documents that
            I can get access to that would help me resolve these

            Thanks in advance for any and all help.
