shift-jis. For Unix euc-jp, aliases "unix-jis" and "ujis". I guess the
MS-Windows "cp932" or "shift-jis" will also work.

"chinese", "prc" and "euccn" can be aliases for "euc-cn".
The remaining question is whether "euc-cn" and "cp949" are similar enough to
make them an alias. And when not, if "cp949" can be used on Unix anyway.
