Most current code pages

Periodically, like most of you, I need to update my code page support.
At times like this, I certainly wish the world used Unicode and only
Unicode. Unfortunately, it does not. I therefore need to find out
from each vendor (operating system, printer manufacturer, terminal
manufacturer, etc.) if they have changed or created new codepages.

(Generally this is a royal pita.)

In particular, I expect to find support for the Euro added to some if not
many. I notice the mappings in the Unicode directories have not been
updated for this, so I have to look to the individual vendors.

Would it be possible for the vendors on this list to mail me either:

a) the list of changes and additions to their codepages in the last
2 years or

b) URL's where I could go review their codepages (presuming the info is
on the web somewhere)

c) other contact info, where I can acquire this information.

A better alternative would be to have the mappings in the Unicode web
site updated to reflect the changes, but I don't expect this is a near
term project.

If I get meaningful responses I will post a summary back to this list
(although it will be several weeks after the upcoming conference!)

I expect I am not the only one with this need, or I wouldn't ask it here.
