 MVS COBOL conversion to ASCII

Which 8 bit ISO code (international superset of 7 bit ASCII) code page to
which EBCDIC code page.  Since there are over 256 combinations of western
alphabet letters, numbers and special characters such as currency symbols
there are varying sets of 256 symbols and rarely are there matching
EBCDIC and ISO sets.  That is why ISO 10646 and the Unicode 2 byte
character subset of ISO 10646 were invented).
