Is it? I think that a "character set" consists of a "character
repertoire" and a "form of use".

I don't understand this probably due to my English ability. Can you
tell me where I can get SQL99 on line doc so that I could study it
more?

Right. While I am not sure we could statically link it, there could be
"default character set" in a installation or database. Also we could
have another "default character set" for NATIONAL CHARACTER. It seems
that those "default character set" are actually same acording to the
standard?
