IE 5 supports more encodings than listed. For example,
the western European DOS encoding is supported (though
not selectable). However, such web pages will *only*
be displayed properly if they contain a <META> tag
specifying that the encoding is ibm850. JIS is not
selectable, but will work if a <META> tag is on the
page, or if "Japanese (Auto-select)" is chosen from
the encoding list.
