Hi!

In my complete list of ISO 8859 charsets I only find in

ISO 8859-1 (West Europe)
ISO 8859-8 (Hebrew)
ISO 8859-9 (Turkish)
ISO 8859-13 (Baltic Rim)
ISO 8859-14 (Celtic)
ISO 8859-15 (West Europe)

ISO 8859-2 through -7 and -9 through -11 (-12 does not exist) don't
contain it.

> In some other cases we need the trademark (TM) symbol.

(TM) cannot be found in *any* of the ISO 8859 standard charsets. It
also cannot be found in any of the DOS codepages, EBCDIC codpages or
ISO 646 charsets I know (and I am quite sure to know all of them). 
The only charsets I found them in are Windows codepages and Unicode.

Unfortunately my knowledge of ISO 2022 is by far too limited to make
a statement about the codes defined by it.
