Subject: Impression ASCII extended characters (Spanish)

When printing a document with spanish extended characters (a acute, e acute, etc...) the characters are not printed correctly.

In the emulation session these characters are seen well.

LOCALE variable = spanish_spain.8859

The printer is a Lexmark OPTRA S1650 configured with a lexmark print server and defined in the 'SCOADMIN PRINTER MANAGER' with a remote UNIX printer

SCO OpenServer 5.0.6

I've seen this post in other places around the net and it has gone without answer.

Probably has nothing to do with the OS and everything to do with the characters sent to the printer - in other words, a printer driver issue.

Thanks for the answer,
but as I can modify the driver of the printer?

Of course you can. See (link)

That's assuming you are sending text. If your app is generating escape sequences intended to produce this effect, that's what needs fixing.

Of course you also need to know WHAT needs to be send to get what you want.
