You'd better ask such question on the www-international@w3.org mailing
list, that's the list for work on internationalization, localization,
and multilingualism for the World Wide Web.

Anyway ... you could find some information at:

    http://www.w3.org/International/O-charset

The Unicode Consortium's "Useful Resources" page includes a bunch of
links to valuable sites:

    http://www.unicode.org/unicode/onlinedat/resources.html

"Introduction to i18n" in Debian GNU/Linux's manual, in particular
"Chapter 4 Coded Character Sets And Encodings in the World" is worth
a look:

    http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/intro-i18n/ch-codes.html

For East European languages/scripts, the following letter database
is really excellent:

    http://www.eki.ee/letter/

Koichi Yasuoka maintains a bunch of character tables, mainly CJK
character sets but also variants of ISO 646, ISO 8859 series and
others:

    http://kanji.zinbun.kyoto-u.ac.jp/~yasuoka/CJK.html

Again, unless your question is quite relevant to the validator,
further discussion should take place on the www-international
list, not on this list.
