Greetings, all!

I would like to add unicode support to my dbf project.  The dbf header 
has a one-byte field to hold the encoding of the file.  For example, 
\x03 is code-page 437 MS-DOS.

My google-fu is apparently not up to the task of locating a complete 
resource that has a list of the 256 possible values and their 
corresponding code pages.

So far I have found this, plus variations:

Does anyone know of anything more complete?
