The only one that can be used in MIME, etc. is IBM850. All the others have
an EBCDIC encoding and are not suitable for use "on the wire".

Hello Tamer,

Does anybody currently use any of those IBM character encodings "on the
wire" (i.e. in an Internet protocol such as MIME email or HTTP)?

Thanks,

Erik
