Further to my previous questions, I'm now even more confused about
ASMO 708. I've read in a couple of places that it is a variant of
8859-6. However, the book Developing International Software for
Windows 95 has a "708 MS-DOS Arabic ASMO" codeset whose upper half
is very different from that of 8859-6 (except for the Arabic alphabetic
characters which are in the same positions).
In addition to the earlier questions, can anyone shed some light on that?
