The IANA registered charsets can be found at:


You will find the following:

Name: ISO-8859-1-Windows-3.0-Latin-1                           [HP-PCL5] 
MIBenum: 2000
Source: Extended ISO 8859-1 Latin-1 for Windows 3.0.  
        PCL Symbol Set id: 9U
Alias: csWindows30Latin1

Name: ISO-8859-1-Windows-3.1-Latin-1                           [HP-PCL5] 
MIBenum: 2001
Source: Extended ISO 8859-1 Latin-1 for Windows 3.1.  
        PCL Symbol Set id: 19U
Alias: csWindows31Latin1


I believe these are related to CP 1252. I submit this just as additional
info, as others have already replied with other info.
