But I was interesting mainly not in fonetic equivalents which may be useful
only for short things like name or address, but more technical and simple issue:
how the `transperent' layout may look like if the character map <256,
e.g. a few 8bit characters are restricted like x80-x9F for iso-8859-x.
There should be a `unified' representation form like numeric UA8UBA...
which I saw under some circumstance.

Actually, 2.8+ ignore META charset if one is CJK (in most cases)
but display is not, I don't know why.
I check the code yesterday but haven't sove the problem.
2.7.2 *seems* do the same job in this area (according to the code).
Assume_charset have only effect here. So today I have fixed ^A in Options,
which was not working `sometimes' until you reload by Ctrl-R.
