Maybe it is just me, but I don't see anything on WE8DEC at that site. I 
think there are a bunch of these *DEC char sets available during the 
install of Oracle (I could be wrong about that), so I would not be too 
comfrotable that the DEC char set on that page (DECMCS) is the same w/o 
further research.
