Code page 896

Code page 896, called Japan 7-Bit Katakana Extended,[1] is IBM's code page for code-set G2 of EUC-JP, a 7-bit code page representing the Kana set (upper half) of JIS X 0201 and accompanying Code page 895 which corresponds to the lower half of that standard. It encodes half-width katakana.

The code page defines five extended characters in addition to standard JIS X 0201 assignments; use of these characters is not permitted by the corresponding CCSID 896,[2] but is permitted by the alternative CCSID 4992.[3]

Code page 896 is a 7-bit encoding and therefore does not use the high bit. When it used as the right half of an 8-bit encoding, all values except 0x20 use encoding bytes 0x80 above those defined in the code page[1] (i.e. with the high bit set).
