I suspect the mapping to unicode is straight-forward.  You might be 
able to do this yourself.  One of my references suggested that for many 
encodings all you have to do is change the high byte.  I am pretty sure 
this is an oversimplification, but it does indicate that it may not 
require a table for random mapping.
