The same Unicode char may belong to many "code pages" on both Windows and
Mac. Want do you want really?
I think the appropriate question is "Does a unicode character U+XXXX belong
to code page NNNN -- in fact a encoded charset ?".
For this question look at the charset mapping tables (such as the main basic
mappings found in the online Unicode database, or the extensive database in
the ICU Charsets web site, or the Microsoft GlobalDev website, or other
similar resources from vendors like IBM, HP-Compaq-Digital, Apple, Adobe,
NEC, or some charsets mappings published as part of the IANA charset
Another good question is "To how many and which encoded charsets does a
Unicode character belong?" Difficult answer, as there does not seem to exist
an extensive and complete database of all charsets used in the world. What
you'll be able to find is a collection of charsets (for example the
collection of codepages supported and distributed in Windows XP/2002 retail
version) against with this question has been replied.
