[Alain] I guess so, since it maps the UCS. I guess that its calls for
UTF-8 to be mapped at all IBM gateways asap to UTF-EBCDIC. Then it can be
mapped to a CECP code page that maps the repertoire of ISO/IEC 8859-15, as
this is the only standard reference with a clean repertorie of 191
characters that can be implemented on an EBCDIC machine internally for
existing applications. That is one solution, of course.
