Hi Randy,

As of the previous week's telecon you had an action to review my
proposal to us textual conventions (eg, 'PrtConsoleLocaleDisplayString')
to clarify the localization control variable for human-readable
strings in the Printer MIB.

I haven't heard from you and there was therefore no action on this
item at yesterday's telecon (where Harry says 'buzzed through
last items').

Even if the PWG doesn't accept my (late) suggestion for a new
General object 'prtGeneralStaticLocalization' to clarify the
(mostly) localizable other 27 strings or so (excepting ones
like 'prtInputMediaName' (which might be an English keyword
from ISO 10175), we (Xerox and Fuji Xerox) would greatly
appreciate the retyping of these strings as
'PrtStaticLocaleDisplayString' to make their inherent
human-readableness ?? obvious and to indicate that they
are not in a 'defined' locale.
