EUC

Extended Unix Code is actually pretty generic, just a 2-byte encoding scheme. The JIS version is EUC-JP, but there are also versions for various other languages: EUC-CN, EUC-KR, EUC-TW. And a few are even more specific as to which characters are mapped, as usual Microsoft likes to throw a monkey wrench into the mix: EUC-JP-MS, EUC-WIN, EUC-OPEN, EUC-JISX0213.

Now that the Unicode people have addressed some of the concerns that the Asian countries had with the first version of Unicode specification maybe eventually (how I hope) they will start using the new Unicode encoding.
