One locale works only with one encoding.  There are no "default" or perhaps 
alternative encodings for one locale; there is only one.  The whole point of 
the exercise is to determine what the spelling of that one encoding is in 

Perhaps you are confused about the naming.  These are all entirely separate 


Someone was friendly enough to include the name of the encoding used by the 
locale into its name, but that doesn't mean that en_GB has three alternative 
encodings or something.

At least that's the model we have on POSIX platforms.
