This page has some basic info on MLANG:

Michael,
The best lists you can find are the lists of charsets supported by the 
product
you're looking at.  For example, here are the lists of charsets supported 
by
Java:

Java 1.1 
http://java.sun.com/products/jdk/1.1/docs/guide/intl/encoding.doc.html

Java 1.2
http://java.sun.com/products/jdk/1.2/docs/guide/internat/encoding.doc.html

Java 1.3
http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.3/docs/guide/intl/encoding.doc.html

and those by Netscape:

Navigator 4.5b
http://people.netscape.com/erik/nav-charsets/4.5b2.html

Mozilla (may also apply to Netscape 6)
http://www.mozilla.org/projects/intl/chardet.html

I can't find lists of supported charsets for IE, and searching the MS site 
is
useless.  Does anyone out there have these links?

Mail client generated names and mail server recognized names can also be 
useful,
but there are way too many of them to list, and this info is usually not 
readily
available.
