Yes, it would be a good idea to include a list on the page or
referenced from there, I shall do that.

Ah this is a good point that I meant to mention.  The mkgmap compiler
prefers them to be written in UTF-8, so you should write them that way
if you have the choice.

However many existing ones are not, so if reading them in utf-8 fails,
I then try to read them in the code page that is declared in the file.
