the characters were first converted to LATIN strings and then from LATIN to Unicode.

tables, or algorithms, for the 3 supported character sets (KanjiEBCDIC, KanjiEUC,
The DBC.CharTranslationsV view is only used for conversion of the single-byte characters
in mixed single-byte/multibyte character sets. The table is not used for KANJISJIS.
