User-defined characters

OpenEdge supports user-defined characters, such as the Japanese Gaiji (external) characters of the SHIFT-JIS code page. The lead bytes of these characters are distinguished by having values in the range 240 through 252. The trail bytes of these characters have values in the same range as any SHIFT-JIS trail byte—namely, 64 through 126 and 128 through 252.
