    Be careful how you think about this problem. Some Unicode characters,
    like U+0041, belong to just about every code page ever invented.
    Others, like U+1900, probably belong to none. Searching for "the" code
    page of a Unicode character will return anywhere from zero to hundreds
    of code pages.

    That said, there are cross-mapping tables available at (and other places as well). You
    could start by looking through those.
