RE: Windows and Mac character encoding questions

Most text and internal processing in Windows (NT4, Win2000, XP) is in 
Unicode (mostly UTF-16).

There are interfaces available in Windows that will translate from the 
encodings used on Win95 and Win98 systems to Unicode. In Windows XP, this 
legacy code page value is set via the Regional and Languages Control Panel 
on the Advanced tab as the "Language for Non-Unicode Programs". If you 
select "US English" or most languages of Western Europe, then the legacy 
code page will be 1252.
