Good enough.  The target of http://purl.net/net/cp/437 is not
better.  Do not use this PURL in a standard, its maintenance
is not guaranteed.  The IANA charset registry offers RFC 1345
as another source, but RFC 1345 is not "more authoritative".

As long as you are not interested in the "IBM rotation" for
SUB, DEL, and FS the MS and the IBM mapping are identical.

For another oddity in old MS + PC DOS codepages see
