      Description

      The following chars are not defined in CharsetEncoder/Decoder
      0xA4 0x20AC # EURO SIGN
      0xA5 0x20AF # DRACHMA SIGN
      0xAA 0x037A # GREEK YPOGEGRAMMENI
      justification : http://www.unicode.org/Public/MAPPINGS/ISO8859/8859-7.TXT

      also solaris defines :
      0xAE EROTIMATIKO
      as well as the above 3.
      This web directory
      http://www.unicode.org/Public/MAPPINGS/ISO8859/DatedVersions/
      demonstrates that (according to the Unicode Consortium)
      ISO-8859-7 is the *only* ISO-8859 standard that comes in multiple
      dated revisions.

      When only a few characters are being added, it is compatible enough
      to simply add them to the existing charset implementation, rather
      than being ultra-pedantic and creating a charset named ISO-8859-7:2003.
