I am responsible for registering character sets and code pages
within IBM and I would like to register an additional IBM character
set (= IBM code page) to IANA.  I believe the first step in that
process is to propose the registration to this mail list, hence this
note.

This code page is IBM-866 known as "Personal Computer Cyrillic
Russian."  It is the standard code page for Russian for IBM DOS and
OS/2.  It is also used by Microsoft, known as "MS-DOS Cyrillic CIS 1."

The registration details are as follows:

  Character set name(s):

    IBM866
    CP866
    csIBM866
    866

  Published specification(s):

    IBM NLDG Volume 2 (SE09-8002-03) August 1994
    (It is also available in Microsoft's "Developing International
    Software for Windows 95 and Windows NT" by Nadine Kano,
    ISBN 1-55615-840-8)

  Person & email address to contact for further information:

    Rick Pond, rickpond@vnet.ibm.com

Please send me any comments or concerns or if you wish details of the
code page definition. The registration procedure is not clear about
whether any discussion about this request should take place on this
mailing list. If that is the general procedure, then I would appreciate
if someone could add my name to the list! Otherwise, please send any
notes directly to me.
