Internet Explorer should support any character encoding Windows supports
(see the advanced tab in `control International`), which includes many
EBCDIC encodings. See eg. http://www.websitedev.de/temp/ebcdic-cp-us.txt
for an example. It seems to me www-international at w3.org would have been
a better place to ask your questions than the mailing lists you picked.
