I am trying to setup my samba server for international character set

Going through the below document under the "internationalization", I came to
know that I should set up appropriate "client code page" and "character set"


    client code page = 850
    character set = ISO8859-1


Running testparm utility shows that these setting aren't accpeted by samba.

A little investigation showed that I should use the below settings

dos charset = 850
unix charset = ISO8859-1

Is this just a documentation problem? Or this is different from the above?
