In order for this to work, we need the following:

- It has to be registered with IANA at
   http://www.iana.org/assignments/character-sets
   Currently, windows-874 isn't registered there,
   so it's not legal to use it. It seems to be very
   similar to:

      Name: TIS-620
      MIBenum: 2259
      Source: Thai Industrial Standards Institute (TISI)     [Tantsetthi]

   I guess you should use that wherever it works.
   (The additional characters in windows-874 are very few,
    and probably not so much used.)


- It has to be implemented in iconv (Gerald may
   be able to give more information about the
   version we use).

Regards,    Martin.
