Just a slight correction to the above: The publication date should be
1988. (And the ISBN for this item is 1-870095-01-4).
Also, the Mackenzie book (_Coded character sets, history and
development), mentioned earlier on this thread, does indeed give details
on the EBCDIC/Hollerith Card Code mismatches, in case that is the point of
the original question.
