Re: Usage of CP1252 characters

Ken Whistler claims that the IANA character set
"ISO-8859-1-Windows-3.1-Latin-1" is identical to CP1252.

To the best of my knowledge, this was true only up to Windows 3.11, when MS
added extra characters to the C1 range. In fact, in Win 2 and 3.1, the only
characters available in that range were 0x91 and 0x92 (left & right single
quotation mark). However, with the recent addition of the Euro at 0x80, as
well as the other additions as of Win 3.11, CP1252 has deviated to the
extent that it's no longer what was registered.
