Because the argument to chr() is an integer, which has no endian-ness. You only get into endian-ness if you look at how you store the resulting string. > Also I'd like to point out all encodings has its own code point > systems as far as I know.

Oh, the last discussion on this didn't answer this question. Is there a standard somewhere that maps integers to characters in EUC-JP. If so, how can I find out what character 512 is?
