Hi Lennart,

Sorry for the late reply.

Cygwin just uses the MS Windows naming conventions here.  "ANSI" is
the codepage that the graphics subsystem uses and "OEM" is the default
codepage for console I/O, like CMD.EXE uses it, e.g.

Emacs should have the coding system for the "ANSI" codepage in the
variable locale-coding-system, I think.
