I don't know of anything sorry, and my quick search didn't turn up 
anything public. But I can at least confirm that the internal table for 
cp1252 has the same undefined characters as on unicode.org, so 
presumably if MultiByteToWideChar is mapping those to "best fit" 
characters it's only because the flag has been passed. As far as I can 
tell, Microsoft has not been secretly redefining any encodings.
