Extended Code Pages (ECPs) are available as zip files from this download page.

Download Description

Extended Code Pages (ECPs) are code pages that include multiple encodings within a single code page. Traditional code pages include EBCDIC or ASCII encoding only, but ECPs contain EBCDIC or ASCII encodings along with the Unicode equivalent value. Each code point can be mapped to one or more Unicode values.

Code pages that contain user-defined characters (that is, those characters that have not been registered with IBM and assigned a GCGID value) can now be mapped to TrueType/OpenType fonts.

These zip files are provided: (ECPs for General library) (ECPs for Simplified Chinese library) (ECPs for Traditional Chinese library) (ECPs for Japanese library) (ECPs for Korean library)

For more information about ECPs, see these sources:

For information about how to generate or modify ECPs, see the help for the
InfoPrint AFP Resource Installer.

For information about how ECPs work, see font information in the InfoPrint
Manager and InfoPrint ProcessDirector publications, which are available in
the InfoPrint Information Center.
