This might be useful input for the recent discussion about entity 
references and figuring out which characters are available in which 
character sets. I do expect that a Java API for this sort of stuff 
will be added in JDK 1.4 soon, but if we do want to support pre-1.4 
JVMs we'll need to roll our own.

>ICU provides character set conversion with mapping tables for a 
>number of important codepages. The default tables are a subset of 
>IBM's CDRA conversion table repository.
>Conversions for most codepages are implemented differently on 
>different platforms. We are providing mapping tables from many 
>different sources so that ICU users and others can use these tables 
>to get the same conversion behavior as on the original platforms.
>The mapping tables are checked into a CVS repository which is 
>available via the web.
>We have currently 727 mapping tables (.ucm, some fewer in .xml) in 
>the repository.
