I would say that you should try to

1st convert the character coding of the source file to something "neutral" (e.g. WINDOWS-1252) using the iconv utility (run "iconv --list" for a list of available charsets),
2nd you'd do the a2ps conversion you have done before.

There are many search references to u2ps, paps and uniprint, but I'm not familiar with any of these. It seems that paps could be a good fit for me. Does anyone have experience with this? Will it run SLES10?

I'm open to any suggestions that can accomplish this.

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 (x86_64)

Thanks to all who reply,
