When people use the word "JIS" in the context of a character set
encoding, they usually mean ISO-2022-JP. Shift_JIS is entirely
different. It is a standard, however. If you're using MS products,
though, depending on what characters you use, you may end up using
a variant of Shift_JIS with some extra characters that will not be
interpreted correctly in some cases on, say, some Unix systems.
