How to print umlauts like ä,ö & ü?

When I print text containing characters like ä, ö, ü or ß I get different characters on paper then i see in the file.
I print to printer as raw device.
What do I have to do to get WYSIWYG.

Used the right driver with CUPS this gives me at least the umlauts only the rest of the layout is now different then when printing to the raw device
open the terminal
type setup
and go to printer configuration
the select the driver option to match your printer

Configured the printer with the same code-page as the application uses. That solved the problem.
>> Configured the printer with the same code-page as the application uses

rminds me of a very basic rule I established for own printing some while ago:
"Make sure that all parts, that are directly envolved in the printing, use the same configuration".

Congratulations you solved it.
to be exact, ist should be: "use same configuration parameters" ; ))
