HZ is a TES, Transfer Encoding Syntax, see UTR17, of GB2312, not a character encoding proper. Nor is it a national standard. If at all kept in this template it should be in the misc section.
Similarly, UTF-7 is also a TES, not a UTF (despite the name). So I was thinking of removing UTF-7 from this template. It's included in the "Table Unicode" template, and I think that is enough.

I've tried to group certain encodings in a "logical" way. For instance, even if the GOST standard is/was a national standard, it's for 4, 5, and 6-bit character encodings. Not something used in modern computers. So it's amongst "misc" items. Likewise, HKSCS is near Big5 and CP950 since they are so closely related. Etc.

The Big5-HKSCS encoding is not really supported by Windows. Windows 950 should not be considered HKSCS compatible by default. Windows Vista only supports the Unicode characters of Big5-HKSCS. Microsoft HKSCS —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 04:57, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
UTF-8, read that article please. It is not a "single character" (like horizontal tabulation, backspace etc.), it is a piece of encoding troubles related to line separation. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 09:06, 15 March 2010 (UTC)
I notice, that there are a few code pages messing, namely the following
I have the Korean edition of MS-DOS 6.2, which uses code page 934. It, and code page 938, are also referenced in MS-DOS 6.22 COUNTRY.TXT file.
MS-DOS code page 999 seems to be the code page version of the Yugoslavian ASCII-7 codepage, commonly used especially in Croatia and Slovenia before the advent of code page 852. One notable user of it is the Slovenia SAOP programming corporation's software.
Code page 708 is referenced in Windows. As for 851, 853, and 868, I've seen specifications of them on Google. - 18.104.22.168 (talk) 16:15, 22 August 2010 (UTC)
What are these Windows Codepages? What is CP0028?

Please update the Apple 1 link to point to Apple_I#External_links.
The article the link point to now has been deleted. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 21:35, 30 November 2019 (UTC)
There's a draft of the Apple III character set at Draft:Apple III character set but it will never survive by itself. Consider merging all old Apple sets into one article, source it well, and write up some of the history about them, otherwise it will all just get deleted and you might as well remove them from the infobox now.
The Amstrad link should probably point to Amstrad CP/M Plus character set.
The Apple Sabine link should be removed and that article should be deleted.
The only reference to Elwro Junior is here: List of ZX Spectrum clones#Elwro_800_Junior Currently the link points to an article about Polish spelling. I'm actually not sure if the Elwro Junior has its own character set; it may just be the same as the ZX Spectrum's character set.
The Mattel Aquarius character set article will not survive on its own; I recommend merging it into the Aquarius article.
The Minitel character set article has been deleted. Either remove it from the infobox, or put the character set in the Minitel article.
The OricSCII article has also been deleted. Put the character set in Oric or remove it from the infobox.
The Sega SC-3000 character set article should probably be deleted. Games at the time tended to use sprites and tiles and the meaning / appearance of a given code would be determined by whatever was in sprite ROM.
The Teletext character set will probably get deleted soon, as will Videotex character set.

The leading word "IBM" and the trailing word "emulations" should not be in this list. These terms don't make any sense next to the works Apple, Adobe, etc. Following are the lines to change - just removed IBM and emulations from each:
IBM Apple Macintosh emulations IBM Adobe emulations IBM DEC emulations IBM HP emulations 126.96.36.199 (talk) 14:41, 9 July 2020 (UTC)
I don't know of sources, I'm sorry, for the things to be changed are plain: the term "IBM" doesn't precede Apple - why would it. The term "emulations" doesn't follow Apple, why would it? Are you aware of the character sets used in those machines? They aren't emulations of any IBM anything. The terms are unfortunately free of meaning. I didn't know this would be an unusual request. Sorry to have bothered you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 17:05, 9 July 2020 (UTC)

The "Symbol" link in the Platform Specific section links to a general Symbol page. Shouldn't it be linked to Symbol_(typeface) instead? 184.108.40.206 (talk) 08:28, 19 April 2022 (UTC)
