HostCharacterSet Property
Gets or sets the host character set InfoConnect uses when transmitting and receiving characters.
Syntax
Remarks
This property lets you assign a supplemental character set as the default user-preferred supplemental (UPS) set. The UPS set can also be specified with the Select Character Set (SCS) sequence. The UPS set assigned by this property is loaded as the default when a soft reset is performed (for example, with the ResetTerminal method) or when the DECSTR sequence is invoked.

The Multinational character set (MCS) combines the ASCII and Digital Supplemental Graphic character sets.

The ISO Latin Alphabet Number 1 set combines the ASCII and ISO Latin-1 supplemental sets.

Both supplemental sets are very similar, consisting of symbols and characters for English and many other western European languages.

The default for UNIX and OpenVMS and ReGIS Graphics emulations is DECSupplemental.
