    I needed this information for localization (in kazakh) of a mobile device
    (with internet connectivity). UTF encodings are already supported. I wanted
    character-sets that are specific to kazakh language, and popular enough to
    be supported.

    Looking out further, I found which directly
    confirmed that iso-8859-5 and Windows-1251 cover the kazakh cyrillic
    And so, I would be adding these character sets.

    Mark and Ed,
    Thanks for the resources you shared.

    Your collection has got two sets for cyrillic kazakh: RK1048 and
    Is PT192 (of libiconv) equivalent to PTCP154 ?

    I think I should add support for these two as well.
