Mapping tables available

I am making available mapping tables we use for conversion between Unicode 1.1
and various character sets/transliterations. The archive is available as:

Much of this data originated from the data available from:

Some rearrangement and simplification has been done to make the data a little
more consistent and easier to manage through software. Please note that the
tables are not necessarily one-to-one mappings!

If there are enough requests, I will extract the tables so they can be
retrieved individually. There are 72 mapping tables contained in the
archive in plain ASCII format and Unix line separators (Ctrl-j).

A number of other mapping tables are in progress (e.g. more Russian mappings,
mappings from, and mappings
from "tcs").

Please feel free to alert me about problems with the tables or anything else
about the distribution.

Contributions of other character set and transliteration data always welcome!

The current mapping tables are:
