Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2001-11-27 16:23:36 EST
In order to support it, I need complete character set definition.
I found they should be available at http://jcs.aa.tufs.ac.jp/,
but since the site is in japanesse, I cannot do anything.
So, can you please provide full jisx0213 definition in the format
of /usr/share/i18n/charmaps/ files (using standard Unicode character names)?

We do have JIX0213 support for some time now.
