BUGS

When you see charset=ks_c_5601-1987 on mails and web pages, they really mean "cp949" encodings. To fix that, the following aliases are set;

  1. qr/(?:x-)?uhc$/i => '"cp949"'
  2. qr/(?:x-)?windows-949$/i => '"cp949"'
  3. qr/ks_c_5601-1987$/i => '"cp949"'

The ASCII region (0x00-0x7f) is preserved for all encodings, even though this conflicts with mappings by the Unicode Consortium. See

http://www.debian.or.jp/~kubota/unicode-symbols.html.en

to find out why it is implemented that way.
