> It depends. Is it a multi-byte encoding?
I wrote two modules, one is multi-byte (based on ISO2022),
and the other is not, (ISO_6937 + euro sign).
I admit that those encodings are not so generic,
but both of them are public, standard-defined encodings:
ARIB STD-B24 Volume 1, Part 2, Chapter 7.1:
ETSI EN300-468 Annex A, table00:

Sorry for my ignorance,
but what do you mean by "network-accessible by default"?
Are there web-apps that convert character encodings?
