Doc Text:
*glibc* now supports BIG5-HKSCS-2008 Previously, *glibc* supported an earlier version of the Hong Kong Supplementary Character Set, BIG5-HKSCS-2004. The BIG5-HKSCS character set map has been updated to the HKSCS-2008 revision of the standard. This allows Red Hat Enterprise Linux customers to write applications processing text that is encoded with this version of the standard.
