    The libiconv package ( has mapping
    tables for two Kazakh encodings, PT192 and RK1048.

    If anyone has a copy of an ST RK 920-91 mapping table they can make
    available (in printed or electronic form), or any other Kazakh encoding
    other than PT192 and RK1048, I would like to include them in
