I think what he meant was 8859-9 (Latin-5) legacy data.
To which one should not neglect to add:
Windows "ANSI" code page 1254
IBM code page 857
PC code page 437T
The Macintosh Turkish encoding
Turkish 8 (an old HP encoding)
EBCDIC code page 905
EBCDIC code page 1026
Oracle's TR7DEC and TR8DEC
Oracle's WE8BS2000L5 (an adaptation of Latin-5 on Siemens machines)
and no doubt various terminal sets that I don't know about.
