Printing characters with accents from HP-UX

Hi,

I need to be able to print french characters from an application running on HP-UX. They print out to the screen, but when sent to the printer they come out as different characters.

Thanks,
SD
whatever

Re: Printing characters with accents from HP-UX

Configure the printer's default character set to match the character set you're using on the HP-UX system.

If the printer is also used by Windows workstations, don't worry: the Windows printer drivers always begin each print job by resetting all the printer configuration settings to factory defaults for the duration of the job, then explicitly specify all the non-default settings they need. Changing the printer's default character set should have no effect at all to Windows print jobs.
