I go here for pointers:


That includes a link to the IANA's list of registered charsets, and
a really useful list of the popular charsets in various countries.
The IANA list also has aliases and pointers to standards.

Even those lists fall short. For example, the IANA list doesn't
have windows-1252, but it does have ISO-8859-1-Windows-3.0-Latin-1,
which might be the same thing. It does list the other windows-125x
code pages.
