The following specifications apply to multibyte character sets.

Session Character Set Specification
HANGULEBCDIC933_1II, KANJIEBCDIC5026_0I, KANJIEBCDIC5035_0I, KATAKANAEBCDIC, SCHEBCDIC935_2IJ, or TCHEBCDIC937_3IB Double-byte characters may be included by preceding each contiguous group of them with the Shift-out control byte, (X'0E'), and following this group with the Shift-in control byte, (X'0F').

Any TDP identifier and all delimiters (slash, commas, blanks, quotation marks, apostrophes) must be specified as single-byte characters.

KANJIEUC_0U Each character requires one or two bytes, each possibly preceded by a Single-shift-2, X'8E'), or Single-shift-3, (X'8F'), control byte. So each character requires a total of between one and three bytes.

Any TDP identifier and all delimiters (slash, commas, blanks, quotation marks, apostrophes) must be specified as single-byte characters.

HANGUL949_7R0, HANGULKSC5601_2R4, KANJI932_1S0, KANJISJIS_0S, SCHGB2312_1T0, SCHINESE936_6R0, TCHBIG5_1R0, or TCHINESE950_8R0 Each character requires one or two bytes. Any TDP identifier and all delimiters (slash, commas, blanks, quotation marks, apostrophes) must be specified as single-byte characters.
UTF-8 Each character requires between one and three bytes. Any TDP identifier and all delimiters (slash, commas, blanks, quotation marks, apostrophes) must be specified as single-byte characters.
UTF-16 Each character requires two bytes. Any TDP identifier and all delimiters (slash, comma, blanks, quotation marks, apostrophes) must be from the basic repertoire, that is, unaccented Latin characters.
