    Hi,

    While Steve Waldbusser (IETF Expert Advisor for Printer MIB)
    did NOT use the correct identifier 'hrDevicePrinter', the
    clear intent is that 'hrDeviceType' MUST be 'hrDevicePrinter'.

    (1) Verbatim quote from Printer MIB v1 (RFC 1759) page 28:

    prtGeneralEntry OBJECT-TYPE
        SYNTAX PrtGeneralEntry
        MAX-ACCESS not-accessible
        STATUS current
        DESCRIPTION
            "An entry exists in this table for each
    >> device entry in the hostmib device table who's type
            ^^^^^^ ^^^^^^^^^^
    >> is `printer'"
               ^^^^^^^^^
      
        INDEX { hrDeviceIndex }
        ::= { prtGeneralTable 1 }

    (2) Verbatim quote from Printer MIB v2 (RFC 3805) page 67:

    prtGeneralEntry OBJECT-TYPE
        SYNTAX PrtGeneralEntry
        MAX-ACCESS not-accessible
        STATUS current
        DESCRIPTION
            "An entry exists in this table for each device entry in the
    >> host resources MIB device table with a device type of
                                                   ^^^^^^ ^^^^
    >> 'printer'.
            ^^^^^^^^^

            NOTE: The above description has been modified from RFC 1759
            for clarification."
        INDEX { hrDeviceIndex }
        ::= { prtGeneralTable 1 }

    Cheers,
    - Ira
