Charsets Index

Dear reader,

since I've received a number of calls and emails lately requesting information about character encoding issues, I feel the need to explain to (some of) you that even though I provide this character encoding information free of charge to be used at your own risk, I will only go this far.

Please understand that I will not answer any questions for free since IT is my job not my hobby, so please do not call or email unless you're prepared to get a bill.

Also I didn't invent any of the encodings described here, I merely have created most of the description files, hence my name in the files.

Having said all this, please feel free to use the descriptions and to return feedback.
