GRAPHIC is designed to support client character sets where excluding non-double-byte characters is desired. This is not true of UTF8, Chinese, or Korean.

Moreover, the GRAPHIC pad character is three bytes in UTF8 so that standard padding techniques cannot be used.

For these reasons, the GRAPHIC server character set is not compatible with UTF8, Chinese, or Korean sessions.
