Yes, it's true that the CP852 is the recommended codepage (at least recomended 
by Microsoft), as it was shipped with their DOS systems. But in fact, nobody 
uses that codepage, nor have it ever used - pretty all polish DOS programs  
supports only the "Mazovia" codepage (called by FreeDOS as CP790). Polish 
people doesn't like the CP852, because it's over-writting most of the ASCII 
By the way, I entirely wrote polish translations of FreeDOS in Mazovia
