NAME
     mskanji --	Shift-JIS (MS Kanji) encoding for Japanese text

SYNOPSIS
     ENCODING "MSKanji"

DESCRIPTION
     Shift-JIS,	also known as MS Kanji or SJIS,	is an encoding system for
     Japanese characters, developed by Microsoft Corporation.  It encodes the
     characters	from the JIS X 0201 (ASCII/JIS-Roman) and JIS X	0208
     (Japanese)	character sets as sequences of either one or two bytes.

     Characters	from the ASCII/JIS-Roman character set are encoded as single
     bytes between 0x00	and 0x7F (ASCII) or 0xA1 and 0xDF (Half-width
     katakana).

     Characters	from the JIS X 0208 character set are encoded as two bytes.
     The first ranges from 0x81	- 0x9F,	0xE0 - 0xEA, 0xED - 0xEE (not JIS:
     NEC-selected IBM extended characters), 0xF0 - 0xF9	(not JIS: user
     defined), or 0xFA - 0xFC (not JIS:	IBM extended characters).  The second
     byte ranges from 0x40 - 0xFC, excluding 0x7F (delete).
