I agree with changing prtGeneralPrinterName from OCTET STRING to
DisplayString.

I'm checking with Asian people to see whether
a length of 63 octets is ok for Kanji printer names that might
take 3 or 4 octets in UTF-8 for each Kanji character).

I disagree with terminating the other discussion (see previous reply).
