level parameter and whatever codepage level 2 is assumed. Obviously I am not
the only one who recognizes bogus output when I see it. As for input I don't
trust what the CHRS kludge claims with or without the level parameter. How
Also while I have your attention, I reported CP866 -> UTF-8 on-the-fly web
based conversion and later recalled that it was actually KOI8-R -> UTF-8
on-the-fly web based conversion. The only CP866 <-> UTF-8 conversion done here
has been netmail although I think I sent at least one echomail in CP866 in the
LINUX echo which properly displayed (finally! on smekal.ru.
