According to Corinna Vinschen on 4/6/2009 5:04 AM:
> Please note that eucJP does not work by default on Windows XP and
> earlier OSes!  At least not on the so-called "western languages"
> installations, US, French, Italian, whatever.  The reason is that the
> codepage 20932 is not installed by default.  You can easily install it,
> though, in the "Regional and Language Options" control panel -> Advanced
> -> Code page conversion tables.  Just click on codepage "20932 (JIS X
> 0208-1990 & 0212-1990)" and have your XP installation disk ready.

Let's document this.
