Well, this is one of those questions that cannot be answered since you have
provided no context?
If the default system locale on Windows XP or Windows 2000 is set to
Japanese, then the default system code page is 932. It is the central number
that all non-Unicode applications will care about. For over 90% of the
actual usages for non-Unicode apps, that is the only setting you care about.
Thus for over 90% of the usages, this technique will work on all platforms
(for non-Unicode applications).
For Unicode applications, the setting is not relevant.
