o Underreaching.  This ought to be as simple as the users' issuing the locale 
  to choose their preferred character sets.

o The instructions seem to be for a system-wide setting.  What if you nave a 
  user base with one user preferring Danish (277) and another preferring Polish

Do tagging and autoconversion help?  Or is autoconversion limited to 
(or is that actually 819<-->[site's configured locale]?)

ISPF Edit under ISPF 3.17 seems to deal splendidly with UTF-8 (at least when the
terminal code page is 1047 and all the UTF-8 characters are displayable).  But I
tried setting my terminal to Russian (880) and only Latin characters display
correctly.  Can't experiment much further.  My x3270 claims to support Finnish 
Icelandic (871) and Norwegian (277), but not Danish.  Wait! the URL you cited 
Danish 277?  Are they the same?

Should some of this be on ISPF-L or MVS-OE?
