I know that Java represents Latin-1 as ISO8859_1. Some Java server
frameworks used to return this as the charset attribute in the
Content-Type header, which makes MLANG, IE's char encoding/decoding
engine, barf.
 
All the other ISO names follow a similar convention. See
http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.3/docs/guide/intl/encoding.doc.html for the
full table.

	hi,
	I am working on a java application which is supposed to carry
out some char set conversions with support for various char sets.
However in the supported encoding list for Java, I cannot find UTF-7.
So any ideas as how to move forward with that.  
	 
	Also the canonical name ISO-8859-i is also not present.  Do we
have to create out own ByteToChar and CharToByte classes for these
encodings or what?
	 
	Any help would be greatly appreciated.
	
	
	Best Regards, 
	Khurram
