Use UTF-8. Seriously, different character sets are such an incredibly
sucky thing that nobody should consider re-introducing them, unless
necessary to interact with legacy systems. (Of course, one should
consider Windows to be legacy...) Unicode also has all the weird
line-drawing characters you could ever want, if you find them important.

On which systems are the Latin-set of code pages still necessary?
