    [Many thanks to Michael Sweet for writing a tool 'dfm2html' that
    converts my DocuForm markup to HTML. And a fine tool 'HTMLDOC' that
    converts HTML to PDF and HTML with section numbers and live TOC.
    See below for the rich-text versions of the IANA Charset MIB.]

    Hi folks, Tuesday (8 October 2002)

    I've just sent the second version of 'IANA Charset MIB' to the
    Internet-Drafts editor and posted a copy on the PWG server in the
    directory 'ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/pmp/drafts/' in the files:

        <draft-mcdonald-iana-charset-mib-01.txt> - IETF-style plaintext
        <draft-mcdonald-iana-charset-mib-01.htm> - HTML w/ live TOC
        <draft-mcdonald-iana-charset-mib-01.pdf> - PDF w/ live TOC

    This IANA Charset MIB is required for compilation of the Printer MIB v2
    <draft-ietf-printmib-mib-info-13.txt>, published separately.

    This IANA Charset MIB was developed at the suggestion of Bert Wijnen.

    Cheers,
    - Ira McDonald (editor of IANA Charset MIB)

    I-D Editor, Tuesday (8 October 2002)

    Please place this document in the Internet-Drafts repository named:

        <draft-mcdonald-iana-charset-mib-01.txt>

    It replaces the previous draft named:

        <draft-mcdonald-iana-charset-mib-00.txt>

    This document is required for compilation of the Printer MIB v2
    <draft-ietf-printmib-mib-info-13.txt>, published separately.

    Abstract

       This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB)
       for use with network management protocols in the Internet community.
       This IANA Charset MIB is [intended to become] an IANA registry. In
       particular, a single textual convention 'IANACharset' is defined that
       may be used to specify charset labels in MIB objects. 'IANACharset'
       was extracted from Printer MIB v2 (work-in-progress). 'IANACharset'
       was originally defined (and mis-named) as 'CodedCharSet' in Printer
       MIB v1 (RFC 1759). A tool has been written in C to regenerate this
       IANA Charset MIB, when future charsets are registered by IANA
       according to RFC 2978.

    Thanks very much,
    - Ira McDonald (editor of IANA Charset MIB)
