To do so, the display engine would require mapping tables. So far,
tables have been contributed for mapping the following encodings to
and from iso8859-5: koi8, koi8-r, alternativnyj, cp855, cp866,
windows-1251. If you wish to volunteer to create mapping tables for
gb2312, jis0208 etc, I'm sure they will be accepted.
