The KANJISJIS_0S character set includes all the characters in the JIS X 0201 and JIS X 0208 standards, plus extensions, including single-byte Hankaku Katakana characters and multibyte Kanji characters.

KANJISJIS_0S is not 100% compatible with the latest Windows code page 932 as the mapping to Unicode is different for several Japanese characters including the Yen symbol. Therefore, the best practice is to use KANJI932_1S0 and UTF8/UTF16 session character sets with the UNICODE server character set.
