charset - description of the standard supported character set
A single 8-bit character set, based on ISO 8859-1, is currently
supported. Other character sets may be supported in the future.
ISO 8859-1 is an 8-bit single-byte coded character set. This set, Latin
Alphabet #1, contains characters used for general purpose applications in
typical office environments in at least the following languages: Danish,
Dutch, English, Faeroese, Finnish, French, German, Icelandic,Irish,
Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish, and Swedish.
The ASCII 7-bit character set is a proper subset of 8859-1 (see
ASCII(5)). The characters added by ISO 8859-1 each have the most
significant bit of the byte on.
