My locale was set to Japanese, so it might be appropriate to prefer
JISX0212 over Big5 (I'm not sure though - how widespread is JISX0212
support even within Japan?  Windows only seems to have support for
JISX0208.1990 AFAICT).

I am not sure what it does in a European locale, but Big5 would be
more appropriate there IMHO.

Since recently, Emacs uses Big5 (cp950) or GB (cp936) out of the
box. Previously the user could set selection-coding-system themselves
to get the right thing, but the default in all locales was latin-1,
which was only really appropriate for users from English speaking
countries (excluding Eire).
