Issue #7742 has been updated by phasis68 (Heesob Park).


As I know, VISCII(Vietnamese Standard Code for Information Interchange) can round trip UTF-8. So the implementation of the converter between VISCII and UTF-8 might be easy.

I am not sure if a converter between Windows-1258 and VISCII is possible, Windows-1258 can be supported via VISCII.
Windows-1258 <-> VISCII <-> UTF-8

Anyway, it would be nice if ruby supports VISCII encoding.
