Sorry if I wasn't clear. "The basic ascii English character set" means the low
ascii characters, which all have a one-to-one mapping in shift-jis (minus two
characters, the backslash is a yen symbol, and the tilde is a high-bar) --
anyway safest thing to do is set your editor to shift-jis even if you're only
creating English pages!
