Host code mapping for code pages 1390 and 1399

There have been host-to-PC code mapping inconsistencies between IBM® Personal Communications and Host On-Demand products on a number of DBCS code points when Japanese host code page 1390 or 1399 is used. In Host On-Demand, the UseHodCDRA1399 parameter controls the Unicode remap to correct the inconsistencies. The following table summarizes the mapping for both true and false settings of the UseHodCDRA1399 parameter:
